Since ca2f19b9cc (h264: switch to h2645_parse for NAL parsing) the hwaccel wouldn’t init (when the first h.264 frame is decoded). It was the same on OS X and iOS - creating the decoder would return a “decoder malfunction” error. Apple’s suggested way to create the decoder config for h.264 decoders is CMVideoFormatDescriptionCreateFromH264ParameterSets(), and switching to this function solved the issue on OS X and iOS. A user on IRC confirmed it worked for them too.

Yeah, I’m rkern. I’m in the eastern US time zone and sign in to both #ffmpeg and #ffmpeg-devel.
