If windows is this broken, ffdshow needs to allocate its own stack
before calling libavcodec. We should not design libavcodec around
broken platforms with miniscule stack, especially if it may affect
performance (malloc/free on every frame is not acceptable, it will
lead to horrible memory fragmentation and likely bad cache
