Question Regarding "Supported File Formats, Codecs or Features"

FFmpeg-users mailing list
Dear FFmpeg support team

Hi, This is Yuta Fujii from PwC. I would like to ask you some questions
regarding the following URL sites on the official website of FFmpeg, so I
contact you. (URL:https://ffmpeg.org/general.html)

Q1: What version of the codecs is currently reflected on the "Supported
File Formats, Codecs or Features" page of the HP?
[image: image.png]

Q2: How often is "Supported File Formats, Codecs or Features" updated?

Q3: Besides the major releases (eg: Ver4.2, 4.3) and point releases (eg:
Ver4.2.1, 4.2.2), "Supported File Formats, Codecs or Features" are being
updated. What standards are set for updating?

Q4: Is there a time lag between updating the "Source Code" page and
"Supported File Formats, Codecs or Features" page? If so, how long is it?
For example, on July 21, 2019 (Ver4.2  release date described on the
"Source Code" page of HP), was  "Supported File Formats, Codecs or
Features" updated to Ver4.2?
(Source code page: https://ffmpeg.org/download.html#get-sources)

Q5: When the latest major release version is updated, will the point
release of that latest version always be updated on the "Supported File
Formats, Codecs or Features" page of the HP? (Is it correct to assume that
the update on previous versions will not be reflected on  "Supported File
Formats, Codecs or Features"?)

Thank you for your cooperation.

Kind regards

Assuming your question is:
What version of FFmpeg is currently reflected on mentioned page?

Only current FFmpeg git head.

Whenever a developer implements a new format or codec or protocol
or device and does not forget to update the page.

The pages are completely independent, the question therefore makes
little sense.
(The release page should be updated on every release, the codecs
page does not know about releases.)

If there is a lag, it can be long because we are humans and may forget
things.

As said above, the "general" page listing the supported codecs etc.
has no connection with the download page that lists the releases.

No, because general gets updated (long) before a release is made
(unless a mistake happens).

We try never to change features in previous versions (we only add
security fixes).

As I tried to explain last year:
There is no sales-driven development with sprints and release plans
but (to a large degree) a loose group of individuals working on
developments they are interested in.
Independently of these developments, releases are made at random
points only (!) because Linux distributions need them, they are not
more tested than a daily snapshot and do not get any support on
this mailing list (they do get some security updates, but only long
after the daily snapshots get these security fixes).

Please remove all confidentiality footers when posting on a
public mailing list, they make your company look stupid.

And please avoid posting screenshots except when completely
unavoidable to understand an issue (but not to show us our
own homepage).
