Hi all,

I very rarely send patches to FFmpeg. Maybe I am the last one in the row to
say something about the topic, but I belive it is not good idea to break
motivation of contributors even the idea is good or bad or wrong.

If someone wants to try, he can give a try, release a patch, it can be
discussed in a discussion level. I really find saying such comments like "
We don't need more broadcasting shit in ffmpeg." and "....and it is why
FFmpeg is full of broken things and has a bad name in the professional
world." annoying. Frankly speaking, as my own, I start to think maybe some
people try to give intentional directions to FFmpeg.

Belive me; Cisco, Ateme, Siemens etc. use FFmpeg in their products and
solutions. For me, FFmpeg is great as its contributors.


A part from the topic; there are several useful patches released but not
applied yet, such as:


I wanted to mention this under contributor's motivation sunbjec, maybe
https://patchwork.ffmpeg.org can be used to upload missed patches.

Kind Regards,
