[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] DVB LATM parser
Sun Feb 1 00:07:28 CET 2009
Sorry for the long delay in this! Been really busy with other things.
Now there is a bit of noise on the MythTV lists about this so I thought it
time that I get back to it.

The parser needs to be modified to handle the LATM wrapping and packetize the
stream. Should the parser also set the extradata so the decoder can use that
to set the channels, sample rate & sample size? or should this be left to the
The bitstream filter should just check the LATM wrapping and remove if present.
The decoder then gets raw AAC data and all the parameters have been set by the
parser and so it should all work fine.
Is that the plan?
