 Summary of the bug:

 ffmpeg sets a=rtpmap:98 opus/48000/2 indicating a stereo track
 in RTSP SDP when the source is actually mono.

 How to reproduce:

 The input file has been attached (Big buck bunny with an additional mono
 audio track that has a sine.

 % ffmpeg -re  -i 4000hz-u8bit-pcm-with-video-320-240.mp4 -map 0:0 -map 0:1
 -map 0:2  -c:a opus -strict -2 -c:v h264 -profile:v baseline -x264-params
 repeat-headers=1  -rtsp_transport tcp -f rtsp

 ffmpeg version 4.2.1
 built on macOS 10.15

 Here is the output from ffmpeg with -loglevel panic, which shows the
 invalid SDP:
