Your patch is reverted (aka the newer file is at ---).
I'm also keeping the MP_IMGFLAG_ACCEPT_STRIDE, it is needed for the xv
direct rendering. I'm also applying this to the second vf_get_image()
at line 379 in start_slice() function.

No need to resend the patch, I'll commit in a minutes.
I'll use this commit message.
Fix segfault in scale due to unaligned stride.

in MP_IMGTYPE_EXPORT, but vf_scale uses it only with MP_IMGTYPE_TEMP.
As result stride is not aligned and this causes misalignment for SSE code.

Use MP_IMGFLAG_ACCEPT_ALIDNED_STRIDE instead, that aligns it in all cases.

Solution and initial patch by alexc.xander.yahoo.in.
