#12 Re: mkvalidator does not check SamplingFrequency field

mkvalidator (6)

Sorry to bother you with a new ticket, but it appears that the original one (3509401) is closed for comments.

To my parser it looks like there is a SamplingFrequency field in the file at offset 0x11c. Isn't it possible that mkvalidator ignores the invalid-sized elements instead of reporting them? Line 396 in 0.3.7's libembl2/ebmlmain.c seems to discard the element if its size does not match spec.

    You could be right. It's an issue in libebml (and libebml2) that discards the data because they don't have the proper size. That's why I didn't see it in any tool based on libebml...
    I will try to fix this. Thanks for the info.
