I did dive a bit in mplayer code. If I understood well, the libmpcodec api
decode function is made for 0 or 1 frame to be returned. Namely, it cannot work
with the "current" ffmpeg api which could return more than 1 frame, and this is
the case with the libdav1d ffmpeg decoder.

I guess this is a reasonable "gameover" for mplayer to use the "current" ffmpeg
api or did I miss something?
