[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Avoid suppressing parse errors in matroska

ffmpeg can be made to loop, apparently infinitely, updating time
counters but not video frames (@ mainline HEAD) or crash (SIGFPE
@ ffmpeg-mt HEAD, for example) during decoding because some of
the parsing routines silently swallow error codes.  The attached
patch fixes this.  An example (corrupt) file that this patch
takes from a looper/crasher to a quiet rejection is arith.webm
attached to http://crbug.com/69218.

FWIW, I'm new to ffmpeg's codebase so if you have feedback please
be as detailed/verbose as you like - it's likely I'll learn from
