[Libav-user] --disable-pthreads ???

Hello Everyone,

I am writing a program that uses the FFMPeg libraries for audio encoding
and decoding, and I'm wondering if I should use the "--enable-pthreads"
configure option and what will be the harm if I use the
"--disable-pthreads" option?

It is possible that separate threads in our program will be using these
same FFMPEg functions at the same time.  Do we need to synchronize access
to these functions with a mutex, with or without the --disable-pthreads
option being set?

Are the same context or frame objects shared across threads?
