No, because the patch does not break situation #1. It simply does the same as other decoders (e.g. bmp.c, cljr.c) do: mark all decoded frames as I frames. That's correct in the sense that a decoded frame can be displayed without the need of knowing previous frames.

If FFmpeg is correct, then gst-ffmpeg makes a wrong assumption about FFmpeg decoders. Some days ago I wrote to the GStreamer developers list, reporting that in GStreamer 0.10 Indeo decoding was broken, and asking if it was GStreamer's or FFmpeg's fault. Nobody answered.

So, I'm gonna open a bug against GStreamer 0.10.
