Thanxx for reply ,
 Acttually both ffmpeg version are same but there are diffrerences like some function name ,macro or variable name are different,

So using mine code in VLC player I have to merge manually.
 Its Just an question is there player which uses the same libavcodec library which one is in ffmpeg.

There are different branches of thr libavcodec and anyone using libavcodec can use any of these branches rather than the mian branch as per the requiremnt.

Some different devopers have created some feautre which is not part of main branch and may be VLC is using that and thus the code difference is there.

There are actually 7-8 repositories i think.. chk out here  http://ffmpeg.org/download.html

But problem is that both libavcodec library have difference in their source code. So vlc player is not uses mine modified libavcodec.

Can anybody please tell me why both having different source code. if both uses libavcodec. And how can I modified player to use mine avcodec library.
