Comment (by gjdfgh):

 This function fails only if memory allocation fails, and it allocates only
 little memory. codec=NULL should work too, and also only fails if a small
 memory allocation fails.

 >Is the problem you see reproducible with current FFmpeg git head?

 This question makes no sense.
