Comment (by ponpon):

 if not reverted, those functions is waste its abilities in other codecs,
 mpeg2, mpeg4, h263.
 videotoolbox switchs between software and hardware decoding automatically
 if  kVTVideoDecoderSpecification_RequireHardwareAcceleratedVideoDecoder is
 i think a new implement of videotoolbox software decoding for  those
 functions  is a waste.
 do i misunderstand videotoolbox decoding?

 should i make a new ticket for those functions?
