It seems this crash was caused through the media kit trying to decode a video to play in the webpage.

Actually it crashes in load_add_on, while trying to load the ffmpeg plug-in I guess.

I've seen this bug in other places too, but I've been unable to find the problem so far. One would need a build of the runtime_loader with debug info, I think.

Selecting any article or category on that URL will cause a crash. This category, when selected, causes a huge amount of memory to be used (>6GB) before crashing: http://calgarysun.com/category/sunshine-girls

Otter browser website test on hrev52003 x86_64

Testing with hrev52003 x86_64: I can render the page with both Webpositive and Otter browser. In Webpositive, the video player displays a 'video format not supported' message in the lower section of the page. Page text renders OK, but takes about 30 seconds. Otter browser renders the page in about 19 secs and displays the initial video advertisement in the video player. Then, it seems like it is loading the main video content and eventually will/may crash the browser.

Retested with updated qtwebkit 512.0-a2-11. Video on this page now crashs immediately (regression). Youtube video (ex. Apple WWDC 2018) works now so seems specific to a video player rendering on page (Webpositive) and then a specific video format playback issue within the video player (it was working in Otter browser beforehand, but new qtwebkit update causes a immediate crash).

Tested the above links again using HaikuWebKit 1.6.5 (hrev52022 x86_64). First, I get a alert about SSL (screenshot1.png), then the page takes a very long time to load before crashing Web+ (debugger report attached).
