Yes, this is always needed for input data in FFmpeg.

The additional bytes should be initialized to 0 (I believe
this is not necessary for all operations, but the cost
should be negligible).

Yes, but it should not be possible to alloc memory in
FFmpeg that is not aligned (as all data has to be aligned).
