No. The pictures than a decoder in VLC receives can comes from 2 sources:
1. the vout.
2. picture_New() (through a picture_pool I think)
In the case 1., we don't always control the properties of the buffers except
that it will be large enough for holding width/height (ie we may not have
sufficient data pointer/pitch alignment).
That's partially why we have a compatibility check in ffmpeg_GetFrameBuf().

Not always, picture_Setup() set what VLC wants, but the vout may not be using
it or it can always force other values (ex: xvideo does not use it, see
PoolAlloc() in xcb/xvideo.c).

I don't understand this part/what you mean.

I am a bit dubious about the fact that the proress decoder in ffmpeg doesn't
seem to check the value of CODEC_FLAG_EMU_EDGE. (h264 decoder does for
