Forgot to add that I cannot see any video title on vlc 64 bits . I am guessing 
that this title is not written at the right place in the buffer, but 
instead somewhere in the heap which gets corrupted.

As an important job has been achieved on unsigned / signed pointer types, vlc 
is more robust but it is still crashing sometimes. I have difficulties to 
reproduce this segfault now.
