    What's the point of creating a different Opus encoder? Can't they adapt the "official" one and send any enhancements they need upstream?

      True, there is hope. Of course, like with Vorbis they don't have as much of an incentive since there is a good open reference implementation, unlike with AAC.

        Where is the standard for registering media encoder/decoders?
        You are, aware, I hope, that the solution people have settled on in codec packs for Windows to make everything play nice together is to replace over 90% of the Windows codec mess with ffdshow? (With the remaining bits outside of ffdshow being cases where ffmpeg is currently lacking)

        Pluggable bits and pieces are good in theory, but they add combinatorial complexity. (That's also why various apps, like Quod Libet, simply refuse to support Gentoo Linux.)
