[Ffmpeg-devel] MPEG4 ISO Compliance (known problems)

   My apologies for not keeping a detailed record (specially of the
ASP bitstreams). However here are the SP-streams which were
1. hit006.m4v
2. hit012.m4v
3. jvc013.m4v
4. mit005.m4v
5. mit025.m4v
6. san014.m4v

(base path: http://standards.iso.org/ittf/PubliclyAvailableStandards/ISO_IEC_14496-4_2004_Conformance_Testing/video_conformance/version_1/simple/)

Of the above the following streams
1. hit012.m4v	(352x288)
2. mit005.m4v	(352x288)
            had skipped frames.
Skipped frames are not handled by:
        return get_consumed_bytes(s, buf_size);

However in case it is handled by top level wrapper then this code is
OK. (FYI: I used a different wrapper to drive libavcodec). Note that
the above "issue(?)" is not included in my earlier bug-report.

Also as far as I remember mit025.m4v had the problem with stuffing
bits and hit006.m4v had problem with un-initialised dc-pred dir
(another problem which I had reported earlier but forgot to include in
my final compilation of errors).

hope this helps

thank you, but could you also tell me which specific bitstreams have
problems (and what problem if you know it), otherwise i would have to
compare all against the reference sw which would be redundant work as
apparently you have already done that



In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
