_Regardless_ of which of the two forks you use: The old versions of
libavcodec that this patch adds support for have known bugs in hwaccel. On
top of that, this adds a dependency on the size of a structure, a value
that is explicitly not part of the ABI. So I do not want to support those
old versions, just like JB does not want to support old dvdnav.
As for which fork to use, I do note that David officially dropped support
for libav on MacOS as the maintainer. Similarly, I do not support FFmpeg as
the VDPAU maintainer. Not to mention that this was agreed at FOSDEM *and*
confirmed on the asso list. Also on libav, this patch is inconsistent, as
it mismatches the version requirement of the code and the configure script.
