If ffmpeg bmp is that poor, we can remove it from VLC's ffmpeg.c,

however, I would prefer putting the sdl_image's score higher than
ffmpeg, since the only FourCC supported in sdl_image are:
    { VLC_FOURCC('t','g','a',' '), "TGA" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('b','m','p',' '), "BMP" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('p','n','m',' '), "PNM" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('x','p','m',' '), "XPM" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('x','c','f',' '), "XCF" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('p','c','x',' '), "PCX" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('g','i','f',' '), "GIF" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('j','p','e','g'), "JPG" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('t','i','f','f'), "TIF" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('l','b','m',' '), "LBM" },

in which they are probably in a higher quality than ffmpeg. (though
ffmpeg should be faster).

Anyone knows if this is a good/bad idea ?
