the dll loader in mplayer is heavily used for RE'ing/testing
codecs in ffmpeg. if ffmpeg had the loader and wrappers for other
codecs, mencoder would probably never have been made. and we wouldnt
have had to reinvent so many wheels or split up so many developers.

if you want to bring up dates, would you say that generally, following a
10-year-old plan, is a good idea in a multimedia software project?
