#301 closed defect (duplicate)

id_length is always zero for realmedia videos containing multiple streams

When using -identify to display the length of a locally stored realmedia video
containing multiple streams id_length is always zero. The video itself plays fine.

(Multiple streaming within a video are defined as 'audiences' in the helix
producer. They are used to store multiple streams with different bitrates within
one .rm file.)

When adding the -vid 0 parameter to select a stream from the video file the
id_length value stays zero.

The last mplayer version I've tested this bug on dev-CVS-050518-19:45-3.3.6 .

I've uploaded an example video which can be downloaded from: Please be aware that
this file is served on a plain and simple webserver so don't expect any fancy
streaming magic :)

  • Component changed from demuxer to vo

It is also impossible to seek in the realmedia video with multiple streams,
while with the same movie with a single stream the seek function works.
