Please do not use such derogatory characterizations. You are insulting
someone who is giving his time without cost to you. I won't reduce
myself to name-calling, but there are many unkind words to describe such

In my experience, several developers of ffmpeg are brusque, but
invariable correct. If you find their reply(ies) terse, it is almost
certainly because you do not understand something and they have expected
you to RTFM.

I would characterize your "bug" report as one of those cases. Learn from
your experience, drop the grudge, move on and show some respect for
these people.
