no, BGR32 should IMHO be (msb)ABGR(lsb) not (msb)BGRA(lsb)

yes, we could also change existing names if its needed to keep things sanely

exactly, ffmpeg should follow the idea that the order of the chars in the
name matches the order in memory for formats which are specified based on
PIX_FMT_BGRA is (first byte)B G R A(last byte)
and it matches the order within a number as displayed normally if the
order is specified within a native integer
PIX_FMT_RGB32 is 0xAARRGGBB
and the names arpi originaly choose for mplayer where based on open gl
i and probably others added more format names to mplayer over the time
currently mplayers RGB names match ffmpeg with the exception of a BGR<->RGB
xchange for stuff specified based on native types
if someone would propose to change either id probably not be opposed ...

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
