You're welcome. I don't think it is documented but I am not up to date.

Great, but having to disable multithreading is odd. That was
unnecessary for me, at least with my SVN r37422 build. Now that you
mentioned it I did compile the latest r37563 and multithreading results
in a lot of errors for me as well:

Too many buffered pts
Unexpected decoder output format Planar YV12

I'd say there is a bug to be found somewhere between those two

Fair point.
