Comment (by jyavenard):

 Thank you for looking into it.

 The crash only occurs with ffplay on master (though latest VLC 2.0.4
 crashes in a similar fashion).

 ffplay from release/1.0 branch doesn't crash, however it only shows a
 static frame (see screen capture)
 This is what is shown by most players I've tried using a recentish ffmpeg.
 mplayer started with: -lavdopts threads=2 will show the same static frame.
 ffplay plays the file fine if started with -threads 1.
 VLC 2.0.4 shows the static frame.

 VLV 1.1.10 plays the file fine.

 E.g. as soon as multi-threading is enabled, playback will stay on the
 first frame.
