[Ffmpeg-devel] libtheora brokenness in lavc

i noticed today while talking on #ffmpeg that lavc has a
libtheora-based theora encoder and decoder. when this module is
enabled, the native code is disabled, which has the extremely
unfortunate side-effect of alterring the expected and generated
bitstream format. the codec init headers are passed in-band as frames
instead of being stored in and read from extradata.

imo oggtheora.c should just be removed, but if this is not acceptable,
the current situation is a bug and the header conversion stuff needs
to be added to it..
