Description

Here is a backtrace for a mythfrontend crash playing an h.264 encoded AVI file (svn 16479 from release-0-21-fixes). This video reproducibly crashed the player (both full screen and just waiting the preview). Plays fine in mplayer and ffplay.

Me too! :)

Playing my h264 videos causes Myth to crash within a few seconds. It's very easy to reproduce, here's a sample file. http://delx.net.au/files/20080326-crashmyth.avi

Trying to play this with MythVideo?, or with the mythtv command causes a crash. This seems to happen regardless of what playback profile I use.

This is the first 30 seconds of the Australian Futurama DVDs (PAL 576i), ripped with mencoder using the x264 and faac codecs. The file plays flawlessly with Mplayer, VLC, Xine and Quicktime.

I'm using MythTV 0.21 with the Kubuntu 7.10 backport packages. If necessary I can build from source to give you a stack trace.

Thanks.

Though apparently not related to the original problem I reported, I will add a backtrace for this video from release-0-21-fixes 16798.
