[Libav-user] Can't get MPEG4 decoder

Hi, thanks for the input. Now I am confused even more. All I need is to
start demuxing an mp4 file. Those codecs test above is not what I do.
I started to check those because I am getting into trouble in this part:
pFormatCtx = avformat_alloc_context(); //ok
AVDictionary *d = NULL;
av_dict_set(&d, "protocol_whitelist","file", 0); //ok
int ret = avformat_open_input(&pFormatCtx, in_f_name , NULL, &d);
avformat_find_stream_info(pFormatCtx, NULL) ///also ok
But once I get to access the codecpar I hit "access violation reading
Because my *codecpar *is not initialized. That's what I don't understand
