We don't want to be dependant on ffmpeg for networking since we also support
gstreamer for movie playback and decoding. Also i don't think ffmpeg support
rtmp, which would be needed for some flash flv streaming. And as mentioned
earlier ffmpeg doesn't cache files it plays, so seeking in progressively
downloaded movies wont work iirc.
So my opinion is that we should not use for networking ffmpeg... That being say
I'm not a big fan of the current curl_adaptor, since curl has it's limitations,
among others i don't think it support http stream seeking. I'll probably post a
suggestion to a new networking structure soon.
