Comment (by gjdfgh):

 You forgot PNG, that essentially requires the same behavior as prores.

 laraShadow_dl.flv unfortunately just shows black when blending against
 black, but have you considered that the result is not better AT ALL when
 just discarding the alpha channel?

 From what I see, blending against black (or maybe blending against a
 checkerboard) is still the sanest default behavior.

 And the ONLY reason our bug tracker terrorist rejects this new default
 behavior is because it's "slower". A typical example of "fast and wrong is
 better than correct and not-turbo-fast". Which is incidentally also the
 reason why ffmpeg fucks up so often (preferring speed over correctness).

 No, wm4.
