Sorry, there was no information in the thread or ticket to deduce that
this had to to with libavcodec.

So, to sum it up, everything has been working fine until libavcodec at

And based on Rafaẽl's discovery, it is fair to assume that libavcodec
now uses something inside extradata despite the video is not

Based on that assumption I have included a patch which I have tested
and plays all video samples in tickets #4017, #5952 and #9546 on
