I always assumed "ffmpeg" was a part of mplayer, and was developed in conjunction with it. It looks like I was mistaken, although some devs work in both projects. Is this the situation ?
Is (or was) A'rpi (the original mplayer dev) also a contributor of ffmpeg ? I remember a long time ago he objecting the use of shared libraries on mplayer due to performance issues.
I once contributed a few short patches to mplayer - now I'm wondering if they were somehow moved to any mplayer-derived project. Not that I'd have a problem with it, just curiosity.

My impression is that MPlayer was the biggest user, so they kind of adopted it.
