Blender 2.78c and 2.79rc2 both crash when I try to rebuild proxy for a strip.
The only thing that I changed between last time things worked (on 2.78) was I think installing new codecs (K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 13.45).
Now when I invoke proxy rebuilding blender simply crashes.
I downloaded mingw+gdb and run Blender through it, however the stacktrace is not hugely helpful:

I am not quite sure how to proceed.
Is there a way to debug further?
Is there a way to change codecs that Blender is trying to use?
