Yes, that would work too. And it would be simpler.
But... Is it a good idea to add a new field to AVFormatContext every 
time that a format requires some new information, which is not used by 
other formats? Just trying to evaluate all the possible advantages and 
Or maybe we can use a new AVFormatContext's flag? (this would avoid 
changing AVFormatContext).
