For the ffplay.c it's hard to say, I'm not familiar with the code enough.

In iff, I'd say no if the codec_type is not audio or video (I guess it can

And for the matroskadec, it is indeed a false positive, but I wonder if
it's worth commenting that change.

There are a lot of deprecated warnings too, I may take some time fixing
them. But what bugs me the most are the const issues all over the place;
while it's possible to fix some of them, it looks like it is generally due
to some inconsistency in the API (or an abuse of const), so I won't change
