 Replying to [comment:56 delirio]:
 > They either aren't using ffmpeg at all or just avoid it for 4K HDR
 releases because of missing support.

 Thanks for researching this. Exactly my point. ffmpeg is going to die out,
 all your hard work you "donated" to this project will have no purpose, as
 all your users walk away and use different applications that don't lack
 this important functionality.
 I hope you realize I will just want to help you, with provocative
 theories, in the hope you will wake up and understand this dramatic

 cehoyos, I'm glad to see you are still with us, fresh and alert to
 downplay the importance of this very critical bug. This time within two
 hours, nice!
