VLC linked with 0.5.1 for sure crashes when receiving proper, legitimate stream.
VLC linked with 0.4.1 might rarely crash when receiving corrupted data. 

My preference would go for 0.4.1.

BTW, crashes on corrupted data are much worse with ffmpeg's h.264 decoder - just
a few lost IP packets can cause a crash. Never seen this with libmpeg2-0.4.1 though.

   With kind regards,
