#805 Segfault on files falsly recognized as AC3 files


When using MediaInfo on several different files, they are falsly recognized as AC3 files. When going through the AC3 parser, a segfault occurs because they contain no audio stream.

I was able to set a work around, preventing the program to segfault, but not solving the false recognition as an AC3 file.

This patch is on version 0.7.65

    Attached is one of the file falsy recognized as AC3.
    It is an embroidery file (.PES)
    Another one is a crypted file (.AXX) so it doesn't look like it depends on the input file.

    thank you for the patch, it is a good hot fix but on my side, I prefer to try to reject the file (not AC-3), let see what I can do with your file...
