Xbmc is entirely based on the ffmpeg libraries and won't work without it so
I'm not really sure what you mean by that.  Xbmc starts up just fine and
you can navigate through the different menus without any problems but as
soon as you try to playback any type of video (file or stream) it will

 If yes, the bisect will probably not help because

Sounds very good, but how?  With the ffmpeg tools (ffplay, etc) as a stand
alone package directly on ios?

Ok, what action plan do we start with, I mean should we jump direct into
the regression testing or what do you suggest?

Btw, I got Kxmovie (github.com/kolyvan/kxmovie) to work by configuring
ffmpeg with the "*--disable-ASM*" flag, thus I'm pretty sure it's some kind
of asm optimization that causes the problem. FYI, kxmovie is also based on
ffmpeg n1.2 and crashes in the same place as xbmc (ie at *

Question. Most implementations of ffmpeg for ios I've found so far utilizes
static ffmpeg libs (like xbcm do). Is there a known problem to use ffmpeg
as dylibs on ios?
