Some avi's don't play at the correct aspect ratio

Some avi's aren't playing back at 1.5:1 instead of 2.35:1 or 1.85:1.

I've tested this with SVN-r28311-4.2.5

Here's a sample video that plays back at 1.50:1 with mplayer even though it's set to be 2.35:1

i suspect that there is an internal codec aspect which differs from the avi container aspect.

does -demuxer lavf make it work properly?

That produces the same results. I am testing this with mplayer for windows though so I'm not sure if -demuxer lavf is a valid option. The problem was initially noticed on the xbmc/xbox1 platform.

-noaspect looks correct

Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg4, yuv420p, 720x304 [PAR 1:1 DAR 45:19], 23.98 tb(r)

the pixel aspect ratio differs from the display aspect ratio
mplayer picks the DAR...

PAR and DAR that FFmpeg displays is two different representations of the same thing.
However vprp (Video Properties) header specifies a DAR of 3:2, which is exactly what MPlayer uses.
There is simply no way to know which is correct, MPlayer goes with the one in the container since it is much simpler to change (in this file for example at 0xf0 there are the hex values 02 00 03 00 which means 3/2, changing it to 13 00 2d 00 will play it with 45:19 DAR).
