ah. it's a bit long to explain, burt in short:
there are 4 levels of 'stability' of codecs:
untested, working, buggy and crashing.
codecs with status=crashing aren't auto-selected to avoid crashing mplayer.

'null' is a working "codecs" (it actually does nothing) but is flagged
'crashing' to avoid auto-selecting it.

please report any crash as bug
