That is precisely why this cannot go in. Did you already forget how pausing 
audio is badly broken in 2.2.x and we were never able to backport the decoder 
thread fixes for that? And that is not the only decoder bug fixed in 3.0.

Any further heavy fixes to the input code are not going to be safe to 
backport, whether it relates to fixing Chromecast, fixing side effects on 
Chromecast, or fixing something unrelated.
