Load watch the video. After the video ends drag the playback marker to the right of the end. Firefox will crash after dragging for a couple seconds.

Can you please specify what do you mean with dragging a couple of seconds? For me the scrubber jumps to the beginning of the file when dragging after the end.
Linux only? I can't reproduce on OSX.
Confirmed on w32, can't reproduce on OSX.

This regressed between nightly builds of 2009053004 and 2009053104
sorry, I just got 0530 build to crash... let me go back further.
it's at least as old as 5/26 continually messing with the slider eventually causes a crash.
so examining this more closely....  There seems to be an older underlying crash that was exposed on 6/2 with the quickly wiggling timeline slider when it is dragged to the right momentarily

20090601 does not exhibit the problem, but
20090602 does crash with wiggling slider

The underlying crash manually messing with the slider as tmyoung posted in his screencast has been around much longer.  at least 5/26  (I didn't check further back)

Posted video video of crash
By staying to the right of the end of the video I get Firefox to crash much quicker.
Given by Tracys changeset the following checkins happened in this timeframe:

Eventually a regression from the fix on bug 495300 or bug 495319? If Roc cannot say it right away, I could start a bisect.
Ok, windbg doesn't help me much here. I only get memory access errors. I don't have an idea if that could be the root cause here?

 buffer_size	<Memory access error>

That would mean with the following assignment we will have a bad pointer and accessing a erroneous child will cause us to crash:

I cannot reproduce the crash in my Windows Vista environment where the build system has been setup. I now have to setup everything on XP before I could give more information and bisect the range.

> buffer    0x00000000 struct OggPlayBuffer *

that's a simple null pointer. a stack trace will show the caller, the callee (oggplay_buffer_set_last_data) clearly doesn't approve of null pointers.

as to the line number, keep in mind that MSVC optimizes heavily, it can favor

147   p = (OggPlayCallbackInfo *)buffer->buffer_list

143   if (buffer->last_filled == -1) {

under the assumptions that:
1. it'll crash doing buffer-> in either case
2. buffer->buffer_list is more useful
3. it will need to check [buffer->last_filled];
4. it wants the array index after it has buffer_list
I should have been added a bit more to my last comment. Sorry Timeless. When checking oggplay_step_decoding in oggplay.c I can see only one call to oggplay_buffer_set_last_data which happens here:

Comparing with the locals output in oggplay_step_decoding 'me' is a null pointer there but not in oggplay_buffer_set_last_data. That's why I think something is corrupt. Am I wrong?

Posted file wingdb session
I spent some time together with timeless on debugging this problem with windbg. Attached you can find our findings. Looks like we wanna access an buffer element outside of its boundary (20).
Chris, could you have a look at it?
I don't think we should block, but we should still take a fix.

Posted file stack
With a debug build I get an assertion when dragging the scrubber to the right when it is near the end position:

ASSERTION: Can only seek in range [0,duration]: 'mSeekTime >= 0 && mSeekTime <= duration'

See the attached wingdb stack.
On trunk this regressed between the following two builds from 090531 and 090601.

Checkins in this timeframe:

Due to there are only two check-ins which match the regression range on 1.9.1 and the patch on bug 487519 was backed out again, bug 495300 has to be the reason for this regression.
Posted patch fixSplinter Review
OK, this bug is because we seek to the end, decode one frame, then decode another frame to see if we're at the end. In this case we are, so DecodeFrame returns E_OGGPLAY_OK. Then we go back to the DECODING state and try to decode another frame. This triggers a crash in oggplay, but it's really our fault because we shouldn't try to do oggplay_step_decoding after E_OGGPLAY_OK was returned without seeking in between.

Obviously we should go to the COMPLETED state when we know we've got the last frame.

We also shouldn't be reading mDecodedFrames while not holding the lock, that was bad.

While seeking to the end a lot in this testcase, we hit a lot of
###!!! ASSERTION: Can only seek in range [0,duration]: 'mSeekTime >= 0 && mSeekTime <= duration', file /home/roc/shared/mozilla-checkin/content/media/video/src/nsOggDecoder.cpp, line 1236
But I'm pretty sure this is due to the first frame presentation time being reported incorrectly by liboggplay; see

Avoids a crash while seeking to the end of some videos.

How well tested are we here? Let's definitely start by getting it on trunk.
Oh, I was not aware that we could land on trunk without 1.9.1 approval now

This patch appears to have gotten 1.9.1 approval but didn't land? Or was it fixed as part of some other bug and forgotten to be marked here?

Removing the stale 1.9.1 approval -- we're code-frozen for and don't want this landing right at the moment. If this has not been fixed on that branch we could land it next time, or if you no longer want to land this patch then just remove the approval request.

Please make sure this gets in before the code-freeze for the 1.9.1 branch.
