interresting that you make this statement the same day that the
wma lossless branch disappears, but github keeps track of deletes
too, see: https://github.com/shahriman
shahriman deleted branch wmall at shahriman/libav a day ago
Deleted branch was at /shahriman/libav/tree/wmall
and it was based on libav and not ffmpeg as is quite evident
also the patch was submitted to libav-devel:
0228 13:36 Mashiat Sarker ( 16) [PATCH] Windows Media Audio Lossless decoder
and never to ffmpeg-devel nor was it cross posted.
how one could construct that this was for supporting ffmpeg and not
libav is beyond me. And yeah libav is slow, i merge things before them

Did FFMTECH collect more money in the name of FFmpeg ?
And if so, how much ?
And id really love to hear an awnser here ...
besides you are pushing this off topic, what was it with libavresample
why did ffmtech/libav fund this rewrite and not get the same for free
in libswresample ? Which would also have kept it one API and one lib
and i think beyond doubt the community would prefer one solution
instead of 2 similar but incompatible libs.
