I don't remember having this error before with ffmpeg. I'll try to recompile libaacplus without fftw3 support to see if there are any changes to this issue.

comment:1 by burek, 11 years ago

I can confirm that when I do "apt-get remove libfftw3-dev" and rebuild libaacplus (without fftw3), the Segfault is gone and FFmpeg works nicely :)
Still though, could that segfault be avoided anyhow? Just for the sake of stability.

comment:2 by Carl Eugen Hoyos, 11 years ago

Is there any indication that there is a bug in FFmpeg?

comment:3 by burek, 11 years ago

well I didn't say it's FFmpeg's fault, I just said:
"Still though, could that segfault be avoided anyhow? Just for the sake of stability."
it would be more acceptable if FFmpeg wouldn't crash, rather print out some error message and abort the operation.

comment:4 by Carl Eugen Hoyos, 11 years ago

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

How could that be possible?

comment:5 by Andrew Wason, 11 years ago

libaacplus encoding started crashing for all samples for me after upgrading from Ubuntu Lucid to Oneiric. The bug is probably somewhere in libaacplus or libfftw3, but adding info here for when others hit this.

Oneiric now builds libfftw3 with SSE/SSE2 enabled, Lucid did not.

I tried building my own libfftw3 with and without --enable-sse/--enable-sse2 and if I enable SSE then libaacplus crashes, leave it disabled and it works.

Here's a stack trace with libftw3 symbols when SSE is enabled:

Well, it might be possible that this has something with insufficient padding or alignment to do.
In that case a valgrind trace might help figuring it out.
A disassembly of the crashing code would help, too.
But the address it crashes on does not seem to come from FFmpeg so I would assume some internal issue in libaacplus.
Since gdb seems fine with the address, it seems most likely that the fact that it is only 4-byte aligned causes the crash.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
