You can't remove a feature and ask us to implement it an other way. We should put it back and decide later (VLC 5.0 ?) how to improve it.

Otherwise, I can give you back #21997 ownership.

By the way, we don't just need to know about the output. We also need to know about the input (access/demux/packetizer/stream_filter modules).
