I also tested in VLC and still confirms that this fixes the problem.

2.0 binary package seems to use an old (buggy) version of FFmpeg so the
fix might have gone in FFmpeg but not in Libav.

Since FFmpeg merges Libav fixes, it might make sense to use FFmpeg (I
think fenrir suggested FFmpeg a while ago).
