I have had this problem on Netbsd 2,2.02,-current (20050609).

I cannot compile CVS version of ffmpeg myself, as

a) I don't have the knowledge to patch it to compile on NetBSD
b) Should concentrate on getting package version working (note this
also happens with ffmpeg-0.4.8 in pkgsrc)

I'm trying to decode a DV avi.

Core dump caused by:

#0  0xbda6be7a in pcm_decode_frame () from /usr/pkg/lib/libavcodec.so.0


$ ffmpeg -i odeon.avi odeon.mpg

Memory fault (core dumped) 

I can't even manage to recompile with "debugging symbols".

At the moment I can disable audio with "-an" and it will render.

So this seems to be a pcm_decode issue.

I would be most grateful if

a) Someone can tell me how to debug further
b) Someone has a possible solution

Please do not suggest I try CVS sources as this is not possible, from
the reasons in the first part of this message.

Many thanks,
