#4374 open enhancement

Add support for ZIP archive file format protocol

When exchanging PNG/JPEG/DPX image sequences between computer stations it is easier to handle them within some archive format (uncompressed ZIP).

It would be great if FFmpeg could read the files directly from the ZIP archive using a "zip://" protocol provider.


% ffmpeg -f image2 -i "zip://" -r 25

Sidenote: I also looked at using TAR for storing image sequences but as it doesn't have a file index table it has bad performance when requesting individual files from the archive.

A new protocol is not image2-related.
