So if I understand this right:
- the patch will change the muxer output to use V_FFV1 instead of using
- you demand that we wait with this because older ffmpeg versions would
choke on the new version
So what about all the other muxers that exist in the wild and that will
break on this file? Will you fix them too? I think this suggestion of
waiting until FFmpeg can eat the new output and only then changing the
output is possibly slightly self-centric, and also assumes everyone is
going to update their copy of FFmpeg.
If you're afraid that this change could break demuxers, you probably
shouldn't change it at all.
