 Summary of the bug:

 I built ffmpeg for android, it's working fine for some videos, but it
 crashes on high bitrate h264 videos with rotate tag.

 First let me detail the enviroment:

 1- the script i used to build ffmpeg can be found at
 2 - im testing on android emulator and also in my real phone (i686 and
 3 - the command i'm running is a simple encoding command like:
 {{{ffmpeg -y -i file.mp4 -c:v libx264 -crf 30 -c:a copy output.mp4}}}
 3a - I also tried to use {{{mpeg4}}} and other encoders to replace
 {{{libx264}}} but the same problem occurs
 4 - all videos h264 i've with bitrate until 6.000 kbps work fine
 5 - videos with bitrate 12.000kbps without the rotate metadata work fine
 7 - I've tested big videos (200MB) with 5000kbps and they work fine (if
 the video hasn't the metadata rotate)
 8 - I've tested small videos (15MB) with 12000kbps and they don't work (if
 it has)

 I re-run tha command with the parameters {{{-v 9 -loglevel 99}}} and
 pasted the result at:

 I will set two video samples for anyone test, one which works and one
 which doesn't (the only difference i see is the metadata but i might be
