I don't have such sample, but FFMpeg had vulnerabilities, which could
allow execution of arbitrary code.
Seccomp sandbox would protect system calls against attacker's code if
properly implemented -
demuxers and codecs have to run in background thread to allow
different seccomp filters for different threads (stages of playback).
