Hi VLC Gurus,

Replay of the transcoded file works for me now. While debugging the 
issue, I found that *printf calls (like vprintf, sprintf,....) are the 
main cause of segmentation faults on Solaris (not sure about other Unix 
flavors). If the calling function passes a NULL value to *printf 
functions, the *printf do not check for NULL and replace them with "". 
As a result, they run into SEGFAULT. This is applicable to all the calls 
to *print calls on Solaris. So my question is how should this be fixed 
in the trunk? Should I provide you patches for all the *printf calls? Or 
  any other way??
