these should be done immediately - before the release

also checking the VFCAP_OSD flag should be added, and if it's not
present, than automatic add -vop expand. It's a bit annoying to add
-vop expand every time to commandline (or config) becouse of developers
don't want to duplicate code (i don't want it too ;)

i'm working on libao2 now
audio encoders? are they still in mencoder?
> 4. demuxer api changes, transfer demuxer modules to plugins [me, albeu?]
just make a similar api like libmpcodecs/libao2/libvo
you know arpi, i'm interested in working shared object plugins,
it will be easy after cleaning up the api.
Btw, is it needed for demuxers too to make shared objects of them? ;)
(also this shared object thingie is only an option - mplayer will still

after release, but this hasn't got so high priority (stands after libvo)
