My ffmpeg plugin doesn't do audio. And it still has some minor
performance gaps (examples: it memcpy()s every decoded frame into a
separately allocated buffer instead of decoding to a separate buffer at
once, it doesn't do audio, it doesn't do encoding yet...

Ohwell. I guess encoding is less of an issue, since for encoding, you
need to specify the codec anyway, so you could just as well use ffenc_*
for that. We have enough audio plugins (except for WMA - so I might
still do it after all, but not short-term)...

Only thing left is spider testing (i.e., it might actually just work -
no clue). I guess I just need to remove all video plugins and see if
autoplugging then works. Any better option? I'll work on this pretty
soon. Spider is the only 'important' feature here - the others are long
