 I am trying to stream a mp4 file using ffserver and ffmpeg from my
 archlinux server.
 I launch ffserver using: ffserver -f /etc/ffserver.conf
 Then i launch ffmpeg using:  ffmpeg -i foobar.mp4 -override_ffserver
 -vcodec mpeg2video -b:v 3000
 When a client watching the stream using  mplayer
 rtsp://aa.bbb.c.ddd:5454/rtsp.mpg disconnects, sometimes, ffserver
 crashes, see the gdb and valgrind output below.
 Using valgrind, ffserver doesn't crash anymore.
 Summary of the bug:
 ffmpeg version 2.2.2
 built on archlinux using a fixed version of gcc 4.9.0:
