[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH 2/2] Wrong bit rate in MPEG2 video file (Ticket #1862)

I don't think that 0x3FFFF value is valid bit rate.

The check has to be done later because these are only the low 18bit of the
mpeg2 bitrate. (for mpeg1 its the full bitrate field)

 -> You're right and mpeg1 video has full 18 bits field for bit rate
     But 0x3FFFF of bit rate filed does not indicate bit rate but variable
bit rate.
     Actually MPEG2 video is up to 80 Mbps and 104857200 bps (== 0x3FFFF X
400) is impossible.
     In conclusion, I change from 0x3FFFF to zero because meaning of 0x3FFFF
is variable bit rate.

I update simpler patch for this issue and hope your feedback.

Thanks !

Subject: [PATCH] Wrong bit rate in MPEG2 video file (Ticket #1862)

mpegvideo parser sometime get wrong stream bit rate which is 0x3FFFF*400.
But maximum bit rate of MPEG2 video is up to 80 Mbps in case 1920x1080
When bit rate is 0x3FFFF*400, set bit rate zero.
