Summary of the bug: When playing files through a playlist MPlayer will sometimes crash after a video ends and when trying to start the next one in the playlist. This only started after compiling MPlayer with ffempg-3.3, it did not occur with ffmpeg 3.2.

How to reproduce:
Start a mplayer playlist, wait a little bit for it to play and then skip to the next video. Repeat up to a few times if it doesn't occur the first time.

Full log + backtrace.

I have discovered some more details.

This will only occur with hwdec, as I am a nouveau user this requires the firmware extracted from the nvidia blob and I configured mplayer following the nouveau documentation:


If I comment the 'vc' line it no longer occurs. However the whole reason I use MPlayer is the hwdec support.

Additionally it doesn't seem to crash every time and I have tried running it in valgrind where it does not crash.

Can you confirm the crash happens only without FFmpeg commit 3a6ded7cfc ?

The mentioned commit fixed a vdpau crash bug that I could trigger with some files, especially when pressing enter early after starting up mplayer.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Yes. It seems that FFmpeg commit 3a6ded7cfc solved this. With FFmpeg-3.4 where this is applied the crashes stopped. I also tried reverting that change with an internal version of FFmpeg-3.4 and the crashes quickly resumed. I would consider this fixed until someone can reproduce it again. Thanks again for the help in irc!

  • Resolution changed from fixed to invalid

Thank you for reporting this issue and actively helping to resolve it even after the problems didn't occur anymore with your mplayer installation.

I just switched resolution to invalid as the problem was fixed outside of MPlayer in FFmpeg commit 3a6ded7cfc .
