- Vorbis: infinite loop if codebook_entries>=256
- Id3v2: crash with some unsynchronized frames, especially with UTF-16 comments
- Id3v2: Wrong mime type of covers
- MPEG-PS: crash in case of language info in descriptors

- MPLS: incoherent behavior with MPLS having more than one PlayListItem
- MPEG-TS: crash with some corrupted streams
- MOV: all EIA/CEA-608 captions were not well detected
