I don't see any pollution in the original patch. There were just two

1. extern "C" - this should be directly in the ffmpeg headers anyway.
2. Passing or-ed flags to an enum parameter. The parameter should be
   int in the first place, because enums usually take only values that
   are part of the enumeration. It's confusing that it allows/requires
   combinations of flags instead.

Both could have been avoided with cleaner and more standard practices.
