Comment (by tbucher):

 This stems from issues I ran into some time ago. See comments in
 ticket:7480 and patch comment http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-
 devel/2018-October/235394.html for more details.

 Essentially, one of the two reasons was that playback of HEVC content may
 fail even with properly constructed codec info while it works fine without
 it. The second was missing knowledge of proper syntax.

 So this is the way FFmpeg handles it for the time being.
