Reported by: ahthovaikied Owned by:
Priority: important Component: ffmpeg
Version: git-master Keywords: crash SIGSEGV
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: yes
Analyzed by developer: no


Using this simple command line, ffmpeg triggers a segfault:
ffmpeg -i any_mp3_file.mp3 -filter_complex channelsplit -map_channel 0.0.1 -f null /dev/null

More info with gdb:

/tmp/ffmpeg [master|✔] $ gdb --args ./ffmpeg -i any_mp3_file.mp3 -filter_complex channelsplit -map_channel 0.0.1 -f null /dev/null

Please ignore the parameters, they may be incorrect. I tried to reduce them to the minimum to reproduced the segfault.

Build compiled on Ubuntu 12.04 x64, with GCC 4.6.3.

Reproduced with normal and debug build from git master (commit 847d8af), and older builds from git master too.

Thanks, that was fast.

Do you guys have some sort of command line fuzzing tool to detect such bugs?
