How much longer can this be bettered/developed before being phased out for good? Will users still be using it on a decade? H265 won't last too in its current form(patent crap is stifling!), as it is being superceded by superior codecs as we speak, just need to get the hardware up to scratch more as well as industry.

Work OK without any problems.

@L.V, @Not Happy, @Fred, @Will Aren't you tired of writing this crap under different nicknames after each release?
If something is really broken have you even tried to make bug report to developers or open issue with a detailed description of the problem, and not this "broken broken broken" crap?

Some hardware compatibility problems with Samsung TVs (due to bug in firmware, which not support new versions of H.264 spec i.e. constraint_set4_flag/constraint_set5_flag) were only in revisions from r2959 to r2978 i.e. 2 years ago.

P.S. sophisticles is it you?

What good is this, if it constantly breaks compatibility with recent ffmeg builds and then making workarounds which in turn cause more headaches? Lost the plot!

Let's bet this right without the be! It works in latest to a point before crashing. And it breaks compatibility with some older builds. May work okay for you depending on operation.
