When I try to play a movie on my upnp device, the mime type show as "video/mp4;rate=44100;channels=1
Mono sound is not supported on the device, but the video actually has stereo sound. Running mediatomb in debug and adding the media gives this log:

It seems like ffmpeg thinks the file is mono???
The file is actually a avi that I transcode to mp4. (transcoding never starts because device doesnt accept mime type)
There seem to be two issues:
- Why is ffmpeg reporting mono audio when the avi is stereo?
- Why does mediatomb add rate=44100;channels=1 to the transcoded mime type? It is not sure that the transcoded video will have same audio format as the original video.
I use this mime type in the transcoding, and nothing else:
I'm using MediaTomb version 0.12.1 on Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.
I have now registred these issues as bug ID 3204443 and 3204472.
