There's a hard to reproduce null dereference crash in MediaEngineGonkVideoSource. My best guess is it's we need to null check mCameraControl   https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/dom/media/webrtc/MediaEngineGonkVideoSource.cpp#473

Sotaro, Looks like there's a race condition somewhere here. Does the mCameraControl null check make sense?

Could we know if there is any update? Thanks.
The following functions could be related to the crash. They have a common characteristics. They are called on media thread(MediaManager's thread) and actual task is done on main thread. And They synchronously wait the task's completion. - MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::Allocate() - allocate ICameraControl - MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::Start() - Trigger MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::StartImpl() call. - MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::Deallocate() - Clear ICameraControl pointer.
ICameraControl does not call valid callback function until ICameraControl::Start() is called. Therefore, it seems not possible that ICameraControl is cleared between MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::Start() and MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::StartImpl(). Instead it seems possible that ICameraControl is nullptr when MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::Start() is called. MediaEngineGonkVideoSource::Start() does not check ICameraControl pointer.
FYI: The following is a diagram around MediaManager on gonk. https://github.com/sotaroikeda/firefox-diagrams/blob/master/media/dom_media_MediaManager_FirefoxOS_2_2.pdf
Comment 9 is just one possibility of the crash. Therefore I am going to create a new bug for it.
Diego, can you confirm if the problem still happens?
Sotaro, We are currently patching gecko to avoid this crash

If the code of MediaEngineGonkVideoSource works as expected, this bugs fix should prevent the crash.
OK, I'll remove the patch from our builds and wait and see if the crash comes up again.
OK. I removed the patch from our builds. I'll mark this bug as resolved and reopen if I see the crash again. Thanks for your help sotaro!
