(win64) avformat/FFMPEG crashed after connection loss to stream server

Description

Summary of the bug: When I stream using ffmpeg libraries or ffmpeg.exe itself and my connection is lost I get crash.

I tried it in Linux as well and it "crashed" with unhandled SIGPIPE.

How to reproduce:

  • everything running on windows 7 Professional 64 bit with SP1
  • for the test I used Adobe flash server, dacast, wowza, ustream, livestream, showcaster
  • start streaming with ffmpeg (or use software which utilize the ffmpeg's set of libraries).
  • unplugg the ethernet cable (e.g. simulate connection drop).
  • in few moments I have crash (no special info is given except : unhandled exception at <address> (avformat-54.dll) : Access violation writting location ...)

callstack has only 1 entry (rest is just some addresses) :
avformat-54.dll!avformat_get_riff_audio_tags()

what I think it's going on is, that part of the ffmpeg is trying to send data (RTMP Send) but it does not handled WSAECONNABORTED WinSock? Error properly (10053), so it keeps writing to something that is not a valid socket anymore.

Is this also reproducible with current git head?

Sorry if I misunderstand but is the only Windows-specific thing about this ticket that you originally found it using Windows?

Note that the binaries from this page contain several hundred known regressions, some of them security relevant, please understand that we therefore cannot support this (intentionally) broken version of FFmpeg.

Replying to cehoyos:

I'll try.

Yes, you understand it correctly. I'm using ffmpeg's dll files and observing crashes on windows 7 in the way I described in the ticket. First I thought that I wrote wrong code, so I wanted to see how ffmpeg.exe (as etalon) behave and ffmpeg under Linux (so the Linux test was just to prove myself correct/wrong). When I noticed the behavior is similar to mine I realized that perhaps, there is something wrong with dlls.

I understand that. I'll try the head from git and we will see.

Plus I don't want to call it "platform independent" (at least not now), because the consequences of crash are not so severe under Linux as are under Windows.
