OK, found two additional problems:
- On unknown codecs, the current code simply dumped core because of
closing a codec context, that was never opened.
(Fix is in CVS now...)
- More interestingly:
If you don't specify it at compile time of ffmpeg, it will be build
with AC3-encoding support
BUT WITHOUT AC3-DECODING support!!
This is a licensing issue GPL <-> LGPL, since the used AC3-decoder is
GPL and you change the license of ffmpeg to GPL, if you enable it
at compile time.
Not a big problem for us, but could the windows-folks please look into
the windows build of ffmpeg bundled with Blender and make sure
AC3-decoding is enabled?
It is rather silly, to generate a MPEG-2 file, that can't be opened
later by the same program ;-)
