MN can live in his own imaginary world where ffmpeg takes over the whole world 
but currently libav & ffmpeg is at the same level feature wise.

Now they'll tell you that ffmpeg has video filters, those are dumped from 
mplayer directly, violates the code quality of libav/ffmpeg and possibly have
many bugs in them.

As you see, if ffmpeg if ever gets more advanced than libav then noone can 
argue about switching to ffmpeg.

All clear now?
