completed by: Cosmin Amironesei

mentors: michaelni

Find a new and reproducible bug in FFmpeg or FFplay or FFprobe or libavcodec, libavformat, libswscale, libswresample, libpostproc and submit a full and reproducible bug-report to

Its ok if you find the bug somewhere on a forum but you still must provide everything that is needed to reproduce it in the submitted bug-report. Its not ok to take it from the old ffmpeg or the forks bug tracker.

You can use a fuzzer to modify valid files, if you manage to get one of our tools to crash that counts as bug.

The bug must be in our main git master branch, releases do not count.

Our goal here is to find new bugs that we have not known of before so we can fix them and improve our software.
