Julien Vary:
>> abort() should generally not be in a reachable part of the code - not inside any of the libraries anyway, ffmpeg.c is a different topic.
>> If it is reachable with any input files, and not just present to shut up compilers, this is a bug and should be addressed to return an error instead.
>> Therefore, we should address those cases, and just leave abort as-is otherwise. Nevermind that av_abort would need to be a public function, which sounds like a really bad idea.

> Historically, we had issues with the abort() within libavcodec/vlc.c  alloc_table(), but possibly those are now fixed.

Did you ever open tickets for these issues?
