lavf also uses the matching decoder from lavc if all else fails to
gather things like width/height/samplerate

besides these, one could compile a lavc with all unneeded parts disabled
(all encoders, most/all decoders and just leave the parsers in there)
this way a lavc for lavf should be smaller

Asymptotically faster algorithms should always be preferred if you have
