H264 + FF_THREAD_SLICE + w32thread crashes

Reported by: ronag Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avcodec
Version: 0.8.1 Keywords: crash win32 h264
Cc: Blocked By:

Running w32thread with H264 and FF_THREAD_SLICE caused access violation inside "thread_func" at line 60:

ret= c->func(c->avctx, (uint8_t *)c->arg + jobnr*c->argsize);

None of the arguments seem to be null, so the access violation probably occurs inside the called function.

This problem does not occur with mpeg2 in same setup.

Can you reproduce the problem with ffmpeg (the application)?

In any case, please provide a backtrace.

I don't know how to run sliced threads instead of frame threads with ffmpeg (the application). I assume I would also need an -enable-w32thread build?

Also I cannot provide any meaningful backtrace as I'm on windows and cannot build ffmpeg. I compiled the w32thread.c class in my windows project and called ff_thread_init, before the usual avcodec_open.

The FF_SLICE_THREAD option only seems to call the "execute" function at all if I encode the file with the options, -slices 8 -tune fastdecode, if I don't provide -tune fastdecode then it won't call the execute function at all.

It is possible to get a useful backtrace on Win32 with gdb, please try that.
