pitty irclogs are dead
but i can invent some:

user: i started ffmpeg and it said it cant find the decoder???
dev: You need to compile ffmpeg from the old_messy_game_formats branch
user: ok did that now it complains that it cant find the encoder???
dev: You need to compile ffmpeg from the external_h264_encoder branch
user: yeah but i want to transcode from that game format
dev: idiot, compile both use a pipe
user: i get AV desync now
dev: well known issue, patch welcome
user: i can send a patch to merge the branches
dev: ban user
