The reason is vc1_decode_init() is calling the h263dec.c init function and 
that one depends on valid ->pix_fmts. Shouldn't the default ::get_format() 
check for NULL fmt[] and return PIX_FMT_NONE in that case? That'd be the 
better fix, isn't it?

Anyhow, I also have another fix that will be posted for a new HWAccel
