crashes in 2.79b / 2.78c as well.
Works when you set it to RGBA instead of RGB though.

I dont get the crash if I enforce AV_PIX_FMT_ARGB vs. AV_PIX_FMT_RGB24 (even if RGB is chosen in the UI) like

(even though this doesnt seem like a nice solution)

Couldnt find info if QT RLE requires alpha?
Will do some further research, if that doesnt succeed, I'll need to get help from @Sergey Sharybin (sergey)...

it doesnt require alpha, but its supported.
