Don't know really. I think that if the strategy for the FFMPeg is to
create a platform independent API, they need to contact Apple to solve
this problem and to have a development strategy to have equal or
uniform feature and function between different platforms.
It's no use in developing a toolkit for multiple platforms if the
feature and function differs a lot.
As the implementation is now, the function on Leopard is far from
acceptable and must be considered as a low priority platform and that
is the decision made by the FFMPeg developers.
My guess is that Apple would be interested in solving this issue with
the FFMPeg community.
