I assume this one https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14995
published three years ago.

Does the new demuxer introduce serious regressions? Does it make any file play worse?
If so, then i can understand keeping the old one until the new one is polished, or
even remove the new one and merge it again once it's usable (assuming nobody here
plans to work on it), but if not then we can do without the old one.

No matter what we choose let's just not keep two demuxers in the tree for too long.
