what would you have the author of the software do?
What any competent maintainer would do. determine the parameter(s) value that induces the fault and code a workaround that wards that function call from those values, throw an assertion to get a better handle on what the root cause is, which would probably help the FFMPEG track down the issue if it is in their code. Its as likely that an unitialized value in the calling code is the culprit as something in FFMPEG internals. Grat rule of thumb, initalice EVERY variable when you declare it, let the compiler optimize it out as needed. turn on the uninitialized variable compiler warning explicitly. Dont rely on the default
