I know that several projects decide to stay with versions of external libraries that are known to work, even if switching to the bleeding edge wouldn't be much work in itself (I don't imply laziness, I'm talking about keeping things stable).
2) Be little to no work? you have to be kidding right ? I suggest you subscribe to the ffmpeg/libav mailing lists to see what goes on.
if you are going to die if you don't get hi10, then run xbmc with an external player of your choosing and be done with it.
And I certainly could wait, but if it's not too much work to hack this stuff together, I would simply do it myself. That's why I was asking. You tell me it is, so I'll give it a spin and waste a few hours and probably give up because I don't have the time, but at least I know what I'm dealing with now. That's all I wanted to know.
