#2380: files with "malformated aac bitstream" can not be remuxed
             Reporter:  julian  |                     Type:  defect
               Status:  new     |                 Priority:  normal
            Component:  FFmpeg  |                  Version:  1.2

 download the file https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7221986/3.mkv (sorry its large)

 ffmpeg -i 3.mkv -stats -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -vcodec copy -acodec copy 3.mp4

 remuxing to mp4 fails with

 malformated aac bitstream, use -absf aac_adtstoasc
 av_interleaved_write_frame(): Operation not permitted

 despite the message, adding "-absf aac_adtstoasc" to the command line does
 not help.

 verified with ffmpeg-1.2 as well as older releases.

 i'd like remuxing to succeed even with a damaged aac track especially
 since the file *plays* fine.

 bug seems to be similar to #1758 in spirit
