Summary of the bug:

Hi I am trying to convert frames from PIX_FMT_YUYV422 to PIX_FMT_YUV420P, for some resolution it crashes, but works for other resolutions of frame.

We have compiled Windows Version using instruction from, and are using the latest build.

I managed to debug with windows using MinGW and used GDB, & below isthe stack when it crashes.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

How to reproduce:

Code to reproduce the issue is :

BOOL ConvertFromYUY2ToI420(BYTE* dataIn, DWORD inWidth, DWORD inHeight, DWORD InLen)

struct SwsContext *img_convert_ctx = NULL;

uint8_t *downSample = new BYTE[InLen]; //new BYTE[InLen];
if (!downSample)
return FALSE;

memset(downSample, 0 , InLen);

int outstride[3];

int instride[2] ;
instride[0] = inWidth *2;
instride[1] = 0;

uint8_t *buf[2];
uint8_t *out[2];

out[0] = (uint8_t *) downSample;
out[1] = (uint8_t *) (downSample + (inWidth * inWidth)/2);
out[2] = (uint8_t *) (out[1] + ((inWidth * inWidth)/2));

outstride[0] = inWidth;
outstride[1] = inWidth/2;
//outstride[2] = inWidth/4;

buf[0] = (uint8_t *) dataIn;

if(img_convert_ctx == NULL) {

img_convert_ctx = sws_getContext(inWidth, inHeight,
if(img_convert_ctx == NULL) {
return FALSE;


memset(dataIn, 0, InLen);

CopyMemory(dataIn, out[0], inWidth *inHeight);
CopyMemory((dataIn + (inWidth *inHeight)), out[1], (inWidth *inHeight/4));
CopyMemory( (dataIn + (inWidth *inHeight) + ((inWidth * inHeight)/4) ) , out[2], ((inWidth * inHeight)/4) );

img_convert_ctx = NULL;

if (downSample)
delete[] downSample;
downSample = NULL;

return TRUE;


The above code works for all Width X Height expect when the input resoultion is the fallowing combinaton :
424 x 240
800 x 448
960 x 544
1280 x 720

ffmpeg version : 0.11.0
built on: Windows

Patches should be submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list and not this bug tracker.

Tried to reproduce the issue using test application libswscale/swscale-test. It was executed as follows in Ubuntu:
make libswscale/swscale-test
./libswscale/swscale-test -src yuyv422 -dst yuv420p

Didnt see any crash for the above mentioned resolutions.

Have you tried verifying the erroneous resolutions using swscale-test test app?
