Yup indeed, it's quite a hack. But integrating this feature properly means
changing quite a bunch of things. The only proper way I see right now is:
1) ffmpeg using libavfilter for audio which depends on:
* proper libavfilter audio API (AVFrame based API)
* filter auto reconfiguration in case of sampling rate change
* audio stretching in libavfilter (-async)
* -af option (with auto insert of pan for map channel, and various
2) create in the -amerge scope a merge context filtergraph just like the
one used for -af, and reference the different input streams in the
output stream context.
3) make ffmpeg handle multiple input streams for a given output stream
This requires a tremendous amount of work before we can hope for this
Of course the current solution is far from ideal; just like you said, we
can't configure the input properly, and it will basically be limited to
standard usages. Though, it has the advantage to cover a majority of use
cases. Also, the hack is quite isolated (it doesn't affect the internals).
Do you or anyone else has an alternative to propose?
