[FFmpeg-devel] Stack overflow in VS 2005

Hi all,

I'm trying to transcode an MJPEG file using ffmpeg under Visual Studio 2005. Other files works great (thanks) but this one triggers a stack overflow error when I run it under windows (either when using VS 2005 or as a stand alone app). It works fine under mingw with the same libraries. Any idea what's going on ?

I've seen an old post on google concerning a patch for this :


The change is committed in SVN now of course, but I still got the problem for this stupid MJPEG file...

Here's my ffmpeg version if it can help:
