Attached patch nullwrite.patchSplinter Review
Crash Address 	0x0

memcpy(buffer_.get(), buffer, size);

We crash with a write to address 0 so that means that buffer_.get() is NULL.
Since we try and re-allocate to proper size before memcpy, issue is with the reallocation.
Either size is too big or alignment is invalid, either way, fix is simple, just check that alocation succeeded, if not, return error.

Root cause may be malformed video being decoded.
Flags: needinfo?
Note: would be interesting to actually find a scenario / test case as this might just delay crash to a function later on.
Ok: as mentioned, this is an upstream bug in how AlignedMalloc() is used in MaybeResize().  AlignedMalloc is fallible, and will cause it to return NULL on failure, but MaybeResize() doesn't appear to check it.

Please a) file a bug upstream at, and pose the bug number/link here, b) if you can, propose a patch and post it here. You could propose it to the upstream as a patch (and mark it for reviews!) or do so here and we can propose it upstream later.  Also verify that the current trunk of hasn't fixed it (I suspect it hasn't been fixed).

Thanks for digging through the backlog!

remove the trailing space.  Also, match the norm for the code, which would be:
if (!new_buffer.get())

Will raise the bug there with patch in a couple of hours.

Adrian: the process now is to mark it "checkin-needed"; someone should pick it up and merge it to the tree in relatively short order.  Thanks!
Thanks for the review and guidance, don't have permission to add "checkin-needed" yet - if anyone has rights, feel free to add it
Still a bug in upstream.  Hadn't noticed this hadn't landed yet, will land momentarily.  

Note that it's rare-to-impossible (*maybe* due to insanely-large-video decoded) unless you're on the edge of OOM already.
