I get the crash with attached file under win32

under amigaos i got in the past this:

Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg2video, yuv444p, 512x512 [PAR 1:1 DAR 1:1], 6000 kb/s, 30 fps, 30 tbr, 1200k tbn, 60 tbc

but now I get:

Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg2video (), yuv444p, 512x512 [PAR 1:1 DAR 1:1], 6000 kb/s, 30 fps, 30 tbr, 1200k tbn, 60 tbc

so maybe crash in strlen() make sense? (this is libav debug build btw, because I can't find debug ffmpeg)

if this is reproductible with the head I will try to find rev when regression happened
