Description Hanno Böck 2008-07-12 11:14:18 UTC
lol-ffplay.m2v, created by sam hocevars zzuf, causes an endless loop in gstreamer. I'll attach the sample.

	* ext/mpeg2dec/gstmpeg2dec.c: (handle_sequence):
	Don't allow width/height outside the spec (i.e. smaller than 16
	and higher than 4096). Such files are corrupted ones and setting
	caps that are not a subset of the template caps confuses playbin.
	Fixes bug #542646.
