Comment (by DonMoir):

 Does not crash for me anymore either. This file is marked as
 encrypted/protected and so useful in that sense.

 AVDictionaryEntry* pEntry = av_dict_get

 For the above file, pEntry will be valid.

 The other protected type is:

 AVDictionaryEntry* pEntry = av_dict_get

 In either of the above 2 cases, decoding is likely to fail, but no crash
 anymore. I currently reject files if either "encryption" or
 "ASF_Protection_Type" are detected but removed the check to test for
