Comment (by cecodere):

 Your comment is valid, but i do feel that it is curious that in mov files
 the FOURCC in uppercase in this case, as defined by the codec
 manufacturer, and it was decided to make it lower case in AVI files.

 If you feel this is not an issue, and it was decision by the FFMPEG team
 at the time, and it could break backward compatibility today, i understand
 and the ticket can be closed, at least if people ever see the issue on
 their side they can search in the issue tracker here and find the

 p.s: Apologies on using mediainfo instead of ffprobe.
