I think this statement contains some confusion that is harmful to the discussion. There are two interfaces worth considering in this discussion: the application -> library interface, i.e. the avcodec_decode_*dio() functions, and the framework -> decoder interface, i.e. the decode / receive_frame / ... callbacks. When you are stating "because 99% of decoders need to be ported", you are referring to the framework-decoder interface. On the other hand, the misuse of the API that is at the origin of this thread is related to the application-library interface. We could deprecate avcodec_decode_*dio() right now even though the decoders are not all ported. Regards, -- Nicolas George
