This bug was filed from the Socorro interface and is 
report bp-4ee0199c-85ac-4222-a844-5012a2160417.
=============================================================

There are about 200 crashes with this signature in the past 7 days.

The stack traces are pretty useless, mostly just with lots of frames within the DLL.

A quick google suggests that atiumd6a.dll "ATI Technologies Inc. Radeon Video Acceleration Universal Driver by ATI Technologies".
Is this driver a candidate for blocking?
Flags: needinfo?(milan)
With 200 crashes, hard to tell.  The majority (2/3) is on driver version 15.200.1062.1004.  These crashes make up ~2% (fourth highest) of all crashes on that most common driver version, so I'm not convinced we should just block it.

You didn't happen to actually run into this yourself, right?  I'll see if AMD can make something out of these stacks.

I did not. I just saw it on crash-stats.m.o.
These looks like they're D3D9 DXVA related.

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/regressing bug #]: Hardware accelerated video decoding
[User impact if declined]: Some crashes with hardware accelerated video decoding.
[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: We have lots of video tests.
[Risks and why]: This will blacklist some peoples' drivers, so they'll fallback to software decoding. So they may experience reduced video playback performance. They will however, crash less!
[String/UUID change made/needed]: None.
