On second thought, that really does not make sense.

libmpeg2 provides a strict subset of the functionality of libavcodec, in terms 
of what its pf_activate function accepts. Reducing its priority essentially 
turns it into dead code. configure --disable-libmpeg2 would have the same in a 
much more efficient manner.

As such, I think either the libmpeg2 plugin should have a higher priority, or 
it should be removed altogether.
