thanks for your suggestion,
I have found what I believe to be a cleaner approach, your feedback
const char* url = "udp://localhost?localport=1234";
// pre-allocate the AVFormatContext and set the non block flag
AVFormatContext* ctx = avformat_alloc_context();
ctx->flags |= AVFMT_FLAG_NONBLOCK;
memset(¶ms, 0, sizeof(params));
params.prealloced_context = 1; // let av_open_input_file() know we already
allocated the context
av_open_input_file(&ctx, url, NULL, 0, ¶ms);
