Unless I mistyped something, that was the libavformat version
when I created this file. Should I start from 1.0.0, update
to 52.0.0, or do something else? Let me know and I'll fix the

Ok, sorry... I did not know about this requirement

So, should I change this to an explicit call to
avcodec_register_all(), followed by av_register_all() and then
avdevice_register_all()? If everyone agrees on this, I have no
problems in doing this change...

I'd like to commit this patch soon (actually, I was going to
commit it when I saw your email :)... But I want to be sure that
the main developers agree with this change. Let me know.
