It seems like mPacketizerInput->mChannels is zero in these crashes, which triggers the exception. Chun-Min, it seems that you modified this code recently, can you please have a look?

Flags: needinfo?(cchang)

This is showing up in the Beta97 topcrash list.

The channel count should be clamped between the 1 and the max-channel provided by the device, before it reached to the PacketizeAndProcess. Weird.

We have assertions in AudioPacketizer and before initializing AudioPacketizer if the channel count is 0, but the MOZ_ASSERT doesn't work in beta. We should check the mRequestedInputChanne as well in AudioInputProcessing's ctor and SetRequestedInputChannelCount.

The crashes are only on the Windows for now. I guess some weird audio device may return 0 as its input channel count. We check this on mac but we don't check it on Windows. This might be the reason of why the problem are on Windows only. However, I don't see any crash on Linux but Linux doesn't check it as well. Anyway, maybe we should check the channel count in CubebDeviceEnumerator.

Flags: needinfo?(cchang)

IIRC that check on macOS was introduced in response to bug 1613156, so maybe we have a similar situation on Windows.

I suspect ApplySettings should be executed before here so the AudioInputProcessing::SetRequestedInputChannelCount can run before AudioInputProcessing::Start. Otherwise mRequestedInputChannelCount could be 0 if cubeb creates a 0-channel device (comment 2). I am going to write a patch for it.

(In reply to C.M.Chang[:chunmin] from comment #4)

I suspect ApplySettings should be executed before here so the AudioInputProcessing::SetRequestedInputChannelCount can run before AudioInputProcessing::Start.

hmm... this approach would need to take care MediaTrackGraphImpl::ReevaluateInputDevice() since AudioInputProcessing::SetRequestedInputChannelCount will call it.

Depends on: 1751443
Depends on: 1751778

The patches in bug 1751443 should be able to suppress the crash, while bug 1751778 is more like a preparing step for comment 4, which will refactor the code a bit. I'll file the changes in different bugs so it's easier to monitor the crash rate between these changes.

Depends on: 1751963
No longer depends on: 1751778

No crashes from 97.0b9. Calling this fixed by bug 1751443.
