I believe what Rob was trying to say was that Myth uses FFmpeg. If you can
get it working in FFmpeg and work with the FFmpeg devs, the Myth devs can
incorporate it into a future FFmpeg sync and work out any kinks that are
caused by the sync.
It sounds like you are trying to create the chicken without the egg. If you
can get it working in Myth it might not be backport-able to FFmpeg so you
have to create a new way to do it in there. And then the next sync breaks in
it Myth which means more work for the devs to find out how/why and fix it.

But, I may be completely wrong in my statement.
