Description (last modified by pablo) (diff)

The new iPhone 3GS has the capability to record MP4 video (using the AVC1 video codec). However, when a video is recorded with a vertical alignment, Flash reports its size incorrectly. Here is the dump of the data received by the VideoModel.onData callback:

dat	Object (@250ccbf1)	
	aacaot	2	
	audiochannels	1	
	audiocodecid	"mp4a"	
	audiosamplerate	44100 [0xac44]	
	avclevel	30 [0x1e]	
	avcprofile	66 [0x42]	
	duration	6.176507936507937	
	height	4294966938 [0xfffffe9a]	
	moovposition	633846 [0x9abf6]	
	seekpoints	Array (@2518fbd9)	
	trackinfo	Array (@2518fb31)	
	type	"metadata"	
	videocodecid	"avc1"	
	videoframerate	30 [0x1e]	
	width	4294966937 [0xfffffe99]	

Notice the width and height appear to be negative unsigned integers.

If dimensions such as these are encountered by the player, it should take the absolute value (i.e. width = 0xffffffff - width).

Issue is hard to fix. It's not a simple substraction from 0xffffffff. This leads the video to be 357x358 pixels.

Additionally, the video is rendered 90 degrees CCW rotated. Apparently, there's an additional rotation header that the Flash Plugin cannot parse.

I'd say we blame Apple for their MOV format - messiest video container format ever?
