#7110 open enhancement

Recognize HEVC fourCC input

I'm using virtualDub2 Caching input driver which uses FFMPEG to read, if x265 coded files have "HEV1" FourCC works fine. X265vfw codec generates "HEVC" not recognized by FFMPEG so file is unopenable. As a workaround I'm changing AVIs FourCC but it would be better if FFMPEG directly support it (besides I don't have a fourCC changer for MKV files).
Is it posible to modify FFMPEG so as to also accept opening HEVC fourCC?

Don't know if it means a lot, but MediaInfo understands "HEVC" tag in AVI.

I think I deleted my last comment:
Accept as Input everything that can be understood and try to comply to standards as much as possible on Output.
I also read HEVC fourcc on MKVs. Latest VirtualDub2 accepts HEVC now.
