Comment (by reimar):

 I would expect this is a broken file (beyond it having .mp4 extension when
 it is actually a MXF file).
 Broken in such a way that it fails to put the SPS/PPS into the video
 stream descriptor but instead puts it at the start of the stream.
 After the patch FFmpeg will generate a standard AVCI SPS/PPS, which stops
 FFmpeg from searching the video stream itself for them.
 One option might be to move the ff_generate_avci_extradata near the end of
 avformat_find_stream_info and/or make sure it is only used for actual
