#371 closed defect (fixed)

demux_real.c not endian-safe

Reported by: hagen.heiduck@… Owned by: reimar
Priority: normal Component: demuxer
Version: 1.0pre7 Severity: major
Keywords: Cc: reimar
Blocked By: Blocking:
Reproduced by developer: Analyzed by developer:


Playing RealAudio/Video? files on a big endian host (e.g. Sparc) mostly failes
with "Signal 10" error.

In demux_real_fill_buffer(demuxer_t *demuxer) an uint32_t* pointer "extra" is
defined, which is directly accessed as follows:


extra[0]=1; extra[1]=0; offset of the first chunk

This causes a crash when byte order is swapped, but there may exists some other
"endian-unsafe" code snippets...

Please provide either a full bugreport or a patch instead of pointing at code
snippets and guessing the reasons.
A signal 10 has usually has nothing at all to do with endianness.

comment:2 Changed 15 years ago by moritz@…

Isn't sig 10 SIGBUS? Those usually come from non-aligned memory access on non-
x86 architectures. And the code he points out could do non-aligned memory
access. Anyway, the code in question has it both: Endianess problems and
alignment issues. The proper me2* macros should get rid of both (potential)

comment:3 Changed 15 years ago by reimar

how should the me2* (I assume you mean le2me_*?) macros help? The problem seems
to be an unaligned write, not unaligned read...
I am also not sure that there is an endianness issue, the conversion might be
done in the codec or not (what does that problematic code do anyway??)

comment:4 Changed 15 years ago by moritz@…

Granted, it depends on how the le2* macros are implemented. If they use 32bit
accesses then they're of no use here, obviously.

And you're right about the Endianess issue, too: I don't know (probably no one
does) how the binary codecs expect those numbers. But that's easy to find out
once the alignment issue has been resolved.

Does this issue still exist now that demux_real.c has been rewritten?

comment:7 Changed 14 years ago by hagen.heiduck@…

Yes, same result with CVS-1.0.20060217

Roberto, the RM demuxer is your territory...

comment:10 Changed 10 years ago by reimar

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Might have been fixed by SVN r32683.
-demuxer lavf should work as well.
