I do not care about 'd', but normally if it causes crashes those should
But since the only reason that libmpeg2 exists is its in some cases
higher speed and truly fixing the crashes would AFAICT break that
advantage that does not seem a reasonable approach.
Anything that crashes with -hradframedrop will also crash with e.g.
partially downloaded file (at least partially-downloaded in the
file-sharing, not wget sense).
