the file seems to store alpha = 0
SDL seems to treat alpha=0 different between PAL8 and RGBA, or maybe iam
missing something

try this:

             
swscale does not introduce the alpha=0 its there before

Old code negotiated RGB24 format for render which silently dropped the 
alpha channel. This seems to be because of a bug in pick_format:

libavfilter/avfiltergraph.c, pick_format():
int has_alpha= av_pix_fmt_desc_get(ref->format)->nb_components % 2 == 0;

libavutil/pixdesc.c:
#define pixdesc_has_alpha(pixdesc) \
     ((pixdesc)->nb_components == 2 || (pixdesc)->nb_components == 4 || (pixdesc)->flags & AV_PIX_FMT_FLAG_PAL)

Obviously this fixes it. Why do we think that the first value is 
alpha? Parsing it was added in 0d59ae32c23 but according to the QuickTime 
specs the first int16 should be simply 0, not alpha:

the question here is probably are there files which use this for alpha ?
If theres no flag or othe to detect this then we could check for the
spec variant of all being 0 and treat this as all 0xFF alpha

I dont know or remember why this was using it as alpha

I think it was only because the comment in the code said it is alpha when 
it was ignored, and when alpha support was added it made sense to make use 
of it. Maybe Carl remembers, he was the patch author.

I checked the samples we have, and none of the .mov files with palette are 
using a non-zero "alpha", so I'd say we should simply ignore it.

Marton

This is totally not a new problem, a bunch of players will actually
interpret alpha if it's present as indicated by the pixfmt.
