Video decoders

Avidemux uses built-in decoders for video decoding, mostly from the libavcodec library from FFmpeg. It does not use any external decoders(nbsp)(ndash) for example, it uses built-in FFmpeg MPEG-4 for video encoded with Xvid, there's no option to use external Xvid decoder. External FFmpeg is not used either.
