Nope, I'd be most happy with that type of a solution :-) - I did it this
way (and I'm aware it's a hack of a way to do it) because changing the
scores of modules could have affected a great many things in other parts
of vlc, and I wasn't prepared to judge.
I also thought about just removing the bit in ffmpeg module that says it
can handle BMP, as that is what is causing the problem (at least in my
tests with these particular BMPs). I thought, however, that there may
