It was a legitimate question, relevant to the user's query; meant to help him.

You should get your memory checked and not be so sour - you in fact
responded to the main thread I was referring to. "[Ffmpeg-devel] List
of non-thread safe functions" from 2/7/07 is one such discussion that
specifically mentions certain functions in libavcodec that need to be
wrapped in mutexes in order to be thread safe.

So now I re-iterate my question - have the problems in the above
mentioned thread been fixed or do they still need fixing?
