Please don't take it aggressively (either), but above is the 
answer. I suspect you don't know exactly how open-source works, 
an important factor (at least in the case of FFmpeg) is that 
people see a missing feature (or bug), they implement it and 
send a patch to ffmpeg-devel.

(It should of course be mentioned that in the case of MVC, 
there are some issues that probably make implementing it 
more difficult that let's say VP7, so it is probably a 
very bad idea to start working on FFmpeg with MVC...)

MPlayer should support stereo streams (but you may need 
an extremely expensive Nvidia graphic card).
