I have proposed vp8a/vp9a support. An appropriate qualification task is to
detect the appropriate segment from the AVPacket input in the native ffvp9
or ffvp8 decoder (it's identical in both, so one is enough) and extend the
AVFrame output to contain an empty alpha plane. That patch should go
through a few cycles of review although it's unlikely to be applied by
However, I'm on vacation and my internet isn't great so I can't edit the
wiki by myself. So for this to work, someone else needs to edit the wiki
for me. I also won't be on IRC much until end of this month.
