Description

Hi,

When I accidently ran "ffmpeg /tmp/engineering.mpg -ab 128 -b 400 /tmp/al.mpg" by mistake, (missed out the -i) I got a segfault:

This is on Solaris 10. On Linux, the same command line arguments don't produce a segfault:

However I spotted the "(null)" in the print statement, and pstack against the core showed:

I rebuilt ffmpeg with debugging symbols, and running this through gdb shows:

From what I can gather, vsnprintf has been enhanced on Linux to print "(null)" for null values. On platforms without this enhancement, such as Solaris, instead you get a nice segfault.

I imagine this is quite an easy fix.

Cheers,

Alasdair
