#5518 closed defect (fixed)

dereference before being checked defects in NuppelVideoPlayer.cpp and tv_play.cpp

Description

These defects are the instances where a pointer is dereferenced and then later checked for null. The fix is usually to check before that dereference, but sometimes the fix could be to get rid of the later check (very infrequently).

Watch out, these patches are in heavily used code paths.
