To know the actual bitrate of a media stream (assuming a "real"
codec, not something that by definition has constant frame size),
you have to decode (or at least parse) the whole stream.

You forgot to show the command line you are using together
with the complete, uncut console output but I suspect the 5M
are the maximum bitrate reported by the stream.

Please do not top-post here, Carl Eugen
