FFmpeg includes so much stuff now, I kind of wonder how they can hope to manage such single monolithic releases containing all of it. Have they considered splitting it up somehow (by codec), so that each component can have separate releases?
What about merging ffmpeg-mt? Are there some bugs preventing that?
Reading some instructions about playing BluRay movies there was a way: copy content of protected BluRay to disk (using somewhere-found key), then play this from disk. What about playing BluRays directly, passing key to ffmpeg?
That would sort of defeat the whole purpose of ffmpeg. It's supposed to be a swiss army knife for a/v. Last thing we need is "codec packs" infiltrating linux.
