 I recently updated my mpv build with an updated ffmpeg library version
 from HEAD and noticed that videotoolbox was no longer able to decode
 h.264 videos which were working fine before. I tracked this down to commit
 8d0cc8ca97678f4ca "h264_parser: switch to h2645_parse for NAL unescaping".
 If I revert to a commit before that everything works, with this commit the
 initialisation of videotoolbox fails.
 Sadly a simple revert of this commit is not possible so I could not check
