As libavcodec is a dependancy of libavformat, you can have a newer
libavcodec with a older libavformat but not a newer libavformat with a
older libavcodec (that libavformat could even be using functions from
libavcodec that where not present in the older one)
(newer / older defined based on minor versions)

If its decided that this compatibility code is needed :
0. split the patch between libavcodec and libavformat
this makes it also easy to check if applying only the libavcodec
change would break anything
