> I'm using version 2.7.2 and I'm trying to retrieve block additional side data from a matroska file. Whenever I do an av_read_frame the side data is missing in the resulting packet. Debugging matroskadec.c I can see that the side data is being read into >the internal packet but it looks like this data is lost when it is copied over in matroska_deliver_packet as that only memcpy's the AVPacket structure. Is there a different way I should be doing this to get access to the side data in my file? I'm also >concerned there may be a memory leak when an mkv file contains side data as the internal queue packets are only freed with av_freep in matroska_deliver_packet vs using av_free_packet like is used in matroska_clear_queue, but I may be missing >something.

I've determined that this all gets done up in libavformat/utils.c and I need to add AVFMT_FLAG_KEEP_SIDE_DATA to my context. Sorry to have wasted your time. Thanks, John Bartelme
