It has been partly integrated into both branches, mplayer2 still prefers
ffmpeg-mt, which (so I suppose) is because of the regressions introduced
by the merge. Libav has actually started merging it even earlier, but is
still missing important codecs like h264-mt, which is currently being
worked on very hard. For instance, vp8-mt has been posted for review
With this, I'm updating the tags of this bugs.
