I don't think Im trolling nor flaming, Im exposing arguments and discussing.

I don't think that's a reasonable and fair solution.

IMHO it does. I think discussing is always a good thing, and constructive.

About latest patches:

One was applied.

One contained an issue, I did not see it, and you mentioned it after a
long discussion, and I recognized that was justified.

One simplified interlaced handling in my opinion, and was not broken.

I think it is better to have ByteIOContext position at the end of the
file after av_write_trailer, I respect your decision to not follow that
behaviour, but please respect mine.

DV timecode patches are not broken. They are justified for my use of
ffmpeg, now if you don't want them, it is your decision and I respect
it, but I still want to discuss and argue.

I don't think discussing and exposing arguments is a childish game.
