The issue at hand is that the call to dispatch_async takes an objective-C block ; which doesn't move the rvalue but instead copy it.
So we end up with all the captured objects being copied which increase the refcount to the SharedBuffer.

Due to a race with the task being run (and destructed) on the source buffer parser thread before the dispatch_async returns, and trigger the assertion.

The quick fix is to make SharedBuffer have a thread-safe refcount ; long term fix would be to have the SourceBufferPrivateAVFObjC use a WorkQueue instead, but due to how it would be used with the SourceBufferPrivate, it needs extra method (such as WaitUntilIdle() )
