it is very close to vlc/mplayer/ffmpeg. in fact, it might even read
more formats depending on what options you compile in.

the gavl/gmerlin_avdecoder combo uses libavcodec and libavformat from
ffmpeg (as does mplayer) to play a lot of encoded audio/video streams.
In addition to that, (like mplayer and I assuem VLC) it links in other
libs to decode even more types of audio/video streams.

yes, and AFAIK the gavl package in debian is already over a year old and
is not compatible with readanysf~.
