#1040 closed defect (fixed)

Segmentation fault when decoding consecutive IDR frames

Reported by: peterderivaz Owned by: ksuehring
Priority: minor Milestone: HM-10.1
Component: HM Version: HM-10.0
Keywords: Cc: fbossen, ksuehring, davidf, jct-vc@…


If an encoded stream has two consecutive IDR frames then the decoder has a segmentation fault in createNonDBFilterInfoLCU.

The problem appears to be that the code at line 326 of TDecTop.cpp attempts to detect a new picture by spotting a difference in picture order count:

if (m_apcSlicePilot->isNextSlice() && m_apcSlicePilot->getPOC()!=m_prevPOC && !m_bFirstSliceInSequence)

However, IDR frames have the POC reset to 0 so do not have a different POC. This means that the decoder interprets the second picture as a new slice of the first frame and crashes.

Perhaps it is not valid for an encoded stream to have consecutive IDR frames?

A stream with consecutive IDR pictures is valid. The start of a new picture can be detected based on first_slice_segment_in_pic_flag being equal to one.

The attached patch does not really clean up the decoding, but should hopefully work as a fix for the issue. Could you please test it?

Thanks a lot! Your patch allows my stream to decode correctly now.
