Regarding the decoder, extradata is an input parameter which will
contain the "header" in native subtitle format. The decoder then need to
export the "decoded header" into generic format (ASS). That's what I
added subtitle_header for. Trying to re-use extradata instead would mean
overwritting something provided by the calling app, which might have
been allocated with something else than av_malloc(), or that might even
point to a static const buffer.
The situation is exactly the same for the encoder, but reverted. It is
supposed to output extradata in native encoded format and take the
generic subtitle_header as input.
So re-using extradata for this sounds like a dead-end to me.
Any other idea ?
