No, I did a minor merge a little bit later in [14902].

I was not speaking about the bug itself but about the newer ffmpeg. You 
have done duplicate work which could have been avoided if you had asked 
for a ffmpeg merge. If you did ask I'm sorry for not noticing it.
I've you took my previous mail as hostile I'm sorry it was not meant 
that way. I was only sorry for your wasted time.

recording should not have changed with 14800. easiest way to test for a 
merge error is if ffplay of the same revision can play it.

I missed your report, should be fixed in trunk and 0.21 now.

I don't read the user list.

Don't invest too much time, I'll start to publish my tree with the 
ongoing ffmpeg merges in the next days.
