yes, it is just think of BGR vs. RGB, packed vs planae and such, the point
is that every RGB format should have its own codec_tag ...

1. avidec doesnt set pix_fmt neither before nor after your patch
2. will that work with stream copy of raw from avi->mov? avi->nut? or will
it need changes to every muxer? mapping codec_tag->codec_tag is one
thing, mapping pix_fmt/sound_fmt/codec_tag -> pix_fmt/sound_fmt/codec_tag
so i cant really comment on your suggestion as its not complete but what it
seems to be pointing at doesnt look clean and simple

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
