  Description     : An FFmpeg based source library and Avisynth plugin for easy 
frame accurate access

FFmpegSource (usually known as FFMS or FFMS2) is a cross-platform
wrapper library around FFmpeg, plus some additional components to deal
with file formats FFmpeg's libavformat has (or used to have) problems
with. It gives you an easy, convenient way to say "open and decompress
this media file for me, I don't care how you do it" and get frame- and
sample-accurate access (usually), without having to bother with the
sometimes less than straightforward and less than perfectly documented
FFmpeg API.

The library is written in C++, but the public API is C-friendly and
it's easy to simply include and link directly with a pure C
