Sorry, the problem is that grab.c has no maintainer (as far as I know).
So, things are moving a little bit slowly.
Anyway, your changes looked fine to me, so I am for committing them.
Let's wait another week, and if noone is explicitly against the changes
I'll commit them to grab.c.

The ffmpeg.c fallback code is another story: it works, but maybe it can
be implemented in a better way. Since ffmpeg.c has a maintainer, I
cannot commit that code without an explicit ack. Anyway, I'll resubmit
that patch after committing the grab.c changes.

Do not worry, your code will not be lost. I've recently been distracted
by other issues, but I'll do my best for having it committed.

Copy this in your signature, if you think it is important:
