I am not sure how the ffmpeg muxers works (at least for mp4 and ts) but
they need to know where the AU are (Access Unit) otherwise they cannot
correctly mux h264.
So if av_read_frame is changed from returning 'one AU' to 'one or two AU
that form a frame', they will probably need some changes (unless av_read_frame
is not used for remuxing).
