Due to the change in commit fd0368e7ca35e2feaf7960564e61a76655c4d1f6 calling 
av_find_stream_info multiple times on the same AVFormatContext now causes a 

Previously the info struct was being realllocated on each call, but now it 
is freed at the end of av_find_stream_info and never allocated again.  Not 
sure how to solve this without causing a leak.  But a leak is better than a 
crash IMO.
