The real problem is in av_err2str, which uses a temporary array, which
is either not valid in C++ (likely), or not supported by MSVC for
reasons (although in contrast to C support, its C++ support is
generally pretty good).
But considering how little C++ code we have, its probably best to
somehow avoid using it instead of trying to fix it.
