It caused me to pull some of my hair out the other night
when Xbmc locked up when starting videos (h264 for sure).
I finally realized I had just built the latest git version of FFmpeg
prior to rebuilding Xbmc, so I started looking there.

To shorten the story up a bit, I just finished git bisecting FFmpeg
to locate the cause of the problem, and it is....

commit d185278c369e9150fe6b4cf730405753384bca93

     Support decoding of some unusual jpeg samples.

     Avoid unsupported pix_fmts by upscaling chroma.

     Fixes ticket #878.

I'll have a look at it tomorrow, if someone hasn't come up with 
something by then.
