Thanks, but that wont magically make my system work with the new
API/ABI. I've put some effort on it but a lot is still missing.

I was enthusiastic about this one year ago, hoping this will go back
to a normal state quickly. But now I'm much more sceptical.
Anyway, I expect libavresample to be at least as fast and feature-rich
as libswresample, so if the latter happens to be useful within vlc,
libavresample will be too. Converting the plugin or making a new one
based on it will be the easy part.
