I mean that you're not supposed to use variables to control
the video pipeline anymore in 4.0, and they are other
helpers out there like the following:


If those helpers are not doing what you want, or if they
are not used instead of variables, that is the issue you'll
likely want to solve instead of setting a variable on every
vout available, which will break other things.

I hope this is clearer.
