Bug Description

Whenever converting file with more than one audio track with avconv or ffmpeg, conversion stopped with
"Maybe Mencoder bug" . (But with mencoder everything converting without troubles.)

Console echo:

Launching program: avconv -i /input.mkv -y -vcodec mpeg4 -acodec libmp3lame -f avi -sn -g 300 -bf 2 -strict 1 -ac 2 -vtag DX50 -s 720x576 -threads 2 -trellis 1 -mbd 2 -b 5001k -b:a 224k /movie/movie_01_01.avi -newaudio

It's look, like


wrong in line 546. But I don't know, how fix it.

Quick hack:



search and comment out (append a '#' on top of the line):


It worked for me, with avconv _and_ original ffmpeg (from ppa).

Commenting out the line has worked for me so far. Will repost if I come across a situation where the workaround fails.
