I tried different compile options +nonfree etc., but I cannot find a combination where it does not crash.

I cannot reproduce this problem.
I tried a few different mp4 files, and ffmpeg -i XXX.mp4 out.mp4 works.

This is just a guess, but perhaps FFmpeg suffers from the -fno-stack-check bug.
The bug seems to have been fixed in Xcode 11.3.
After upgrading to the latest Xcode and Command Line Tools, I suggest you try to rebuild ffmpeg from source to see what happens.

Also, please attach the crash log; it may tell us why it crashed.

I confirm it. Rebuilding from scratch and using use_xcode for every port doesn't help

comment:9 Changed 11 months ago by eirnym (Arseny Nasokin)

In Homebrew and few other projects add an additional compilation flag for ffmpeg to compile:

 ENV.append "CXXFLAGS", "-fno-stack-check"

comment:10 Changed 11 months ago by kencu (Ken)

we can do homebrew one better! -- we have a whole PortGroup to accomplish that! <>

comment:11 Changed 11 months ago by eirnym (Arseny Nasokin)

@kencu In this case you should maintain white and black lists of Xcode. Maybe in 11.3 the problem was absent, but in 11.4 it's present again and I confirm it.

comment:12 Changed 11 months ago by eirnym (Arseny Nasokin)

Currently I set the "fixed_xcode_version" to 11.5 in my MacPorts. to make sure that it works fine in my environment. If it's an accepted change, I'll prepare a PR
