Yes it is, I missed it when I changed the size of extradata :/
I'll fix that in the next version.

Well IMHO it is preferred to having a memleak... Of course we could just
ignore the allocation failure and do not set extradata at all, avoiding
the freeing.

Hmm... The st->codec pointer is removed right after the
av_free(st->codec) when av_free(st) is done, so NULLing it seems
pointless to me. And the st pointer is local to this function, so it is
gone right in the next line when the function returns.

Or is there some additional reason to nullify them?
