After test the patch on
Bug 879668 - [MediaEncoder] Implement OmxTrackEncoder on B2G
We found it would crash on copy data from video tags.
Blocks: MediaEncoder
blocking-b2g: --- → 1.4?
Hi Benjamin, 
Could you describe in detail?

Hi Marvin, 
I heard this feature comes from our partners, 
This one needs your input and we should have the requirement to finish this feature.

ah, wrong ni?

Summary: [Media Recorder] Can't record the media stream from video tags → [MediaEncoder] Can't record the media stream from video tags
The root cause is that even though we hold a nsRefPtr<layers::Image>, the yuv data of this image still can be released.

The release is triggered here:

Content process calls ImageClientSingle::UpdateImage -> TextureClient::ForceRemove() -> ipc to b2g process.
b2g process calls PImageBridgeParent::DestroySharedMemory -> ipc to content process. Then the yuv data is released.

b2g process call stack==

remove this line works for sw decoder patch, but it caused problem for camera preview or other hw decoder path.

ImageClientSingle::UpdateImage(ImageContainer* aContainer,
                               uint32_t aContentFlags)
    if (mFrontBuffer) {

The "AddForceRemovingTexture" API will add the texture to texture removed list.
Inside ImageBridgeChild::EndTransaction, it will try to free the texture from the above texture removed list.

But encoder still referred above texture which was free when next composition transaction finished.

The correct way is separate the buffer lifecycle from composition transaction.
And Bug 962101 is working on this part.
In my local, the patch from bug 962101 solved this issue.
