Patch is a pull request:

The segfault in ticket #10222 is still causing problems for me.

The problem in that issue was that AvFormatDecoder? was adding the CODEC_FLAG2_FAST flag. This causes unsafe functions to be used, causing a segfault. The proper way to fix this would probably be to figure out how to test for the "experimental speedups" flag, however I don't know the codebase well enough for this.

I'm not sure that it is worth setting it up that way however, as I tested how this would affect the speed of mythcommflag on one of my recordings. The results (command used: time mythcommflag -f /path/to/file.mpg):

Before removing flag:

real 2m13.123s
user 2m16.713s
sys 0m3.502s

After removing flag:

real 2m13.021s
