Which would indicate the AV_COPY16 does not work with icc.
That is fairly worrying and might mean there will be more serious issues.
Apart from that, when I suggested memcpy I meant replacing the whole for loop by a single memcpy, no need to copy the pixels one by one.
Of course there is a bit of a question about which method is fastest but I guess it's not that critical for this codec.
