I front end ffmpeg with my own API. This API does time accurate seeking and a lot of work to do. The API does more than wrap ffmpeg 
though. It attempts to address problems with ffmpeg and also deals with display output, audio analysis, audio devices, device 
enumeration, special effects, scaling and more. You might say well ffmpeg can do this, but not really in the way I need it.

For me it had to be that it all worked in the best possible way correcting any potential problem and had to be available to others 
that had no notion of ffmpeg.

Personally I am happy to do my own API for this and can easily customize it to meet current or future needs. ffmpeg just serves as 
the low level decoder for audio and video and that is fine with me and ffmpeg is only part of the internal libraries and 

I am not sure I would want to deal with yet another API, but ongoing improvements in the ffmpeg API are welcome.
