           Summary: File with huge amount of channels may DoS applications
           Product: Libav
           Version: git HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: libavformat
        AssignedTo: bugzilla at libav.org
        ReportedBy: siretart at tauware.de


Originally filed against vlc at https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/8226

The issue is that a (specially crafted) file may request to allocate more
resources than is actually available on the system. This is not reasonable, and
should be avoided, at least by default.
