They are related in that all three crashes are due to ffmpeg or
avformatdecoder not dealing with invalid MPEG2 files all that well.
However the solution is different for 5C encrypted data because we
don't want to try to decode that at all, while for #1100 and #1103 we
want to fix how ffmpeg/avformatdecoder deals with the broken files.
