#2216 closed defect (fixed)

Bug in bswap_dbl() corrupts data causing incorrect fps and aspect ratio fields in NUV header.

Reported by: zdevito@… Owned by: Nigel
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.20
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: bswap endian double
Cc: Ticket locked: no


bswap_dbl() tries to swap two variables without saving one to a temporary variable, corrupting the value of the swapped double. This bug only occurs on big endian backends that need to use bswap_dbl. This bug causes several side effects: playback of the video works correctly but often emits lots of "NVP: Prebuffer wait timed out 10 times." messages, OSD messages will not fade away automatically, and nuvexport cannot export the files. I have attached a patch that fixes this bug.

Hmmm. One of the oldest programming mistakes in the book. Where the heck did I copy/paste that code from?
