[Libav-user] Help with deprecated functions/members

Thanks for the response.

I am using various versions of the libs, for example:

libavutil    51. 22. 1 / 51. 22. 1
libavcodec   53. 35. 0 / 53. 35. 0
libavformat  53. 21. 0 / 53. 21. 0

which compiles with the unchanged code. Looking at the latest versions of
the decoders in the libs, it seems like palctrl has been moved into other
structs, and that avcodec_init() and the other members have simply been
removed. I don't know which versions of the libs have the problems, as the
issue was reported by the LiVES packager for Fedora 18 and I am awaiting
further info from him, but it would be whatever is included with ffmpeg

As I stated, I would like to know in which versions of the libs these
changes were made if you have that information, so as I can #ifdef around
them. Presumably there are other projects which need to do the same thing.
And also if my changes are correct (removing avcodec_init() and no longer
freeing avstream->curpkt seem particularly strange for example). None of
this should require knowledge of the lib versions which I am using, just an
awareness that some things have changed between an older version and the
current version.
