MediaPlayer crashes at opening mp3 with cover art

No other ffmpeg based media player crashes with the same file, not even ffplay, so this is a bug in MediaPlayer.

Probably happens since the switch from ffmpeg 0.1x. Unlike ffmpeg 0.1, the current ffmpeg 4.x provides the cover art as video stream, but MediaPlayer can't handle it well, and mostly just crashes. After stripping the cover art like ffmpeg -i tagged.mp3 -vn -codec:a copy -map_metadata -1 out.mp3 no crash happens, so it is definetely the cover art what triggers the bug.

I will attach a debug report about a crash happens reproduceably, 100%. If needed i can provide the file too.

ffmpeg devs said the bug could be somewhere in _HandleNewVideoFrameAndUpdateSystemState

I never experienced a crash but i experienced very high cpu load (leading to some sound skiping).
