Package: libavformat52
Version: 3:0.svn20090303-1
Severity: normal


libavformat doesn't report metadata for FLAC files; the metadata member of
AVFormatContext is NULL, and dump_format() doesn't even report duration
and bitrate:

Input #0, flac, from 'larger_than_64k_flac_metadata.flac':
  Duration: N/A, bitrate: N/A
    Stream #0.0: Audio: flac, 44100 Hz, stereo, s16

This is reproducible with upstream's own FLAC test file available here:

See the output of metaflac --list for the tags contained in the Vorbis
comment section of this FLAC file, or
