While browsing liquidsoap source tree...

Does anyone know what it's exact purpose is and/or state of the art. Seems to have been worked on last time on Wednesday 27 Oct 2010.

For output I would like to use external encoder to read from loopback ALSA

I believe this is doable, not sure if anyone has confirmed this to work?
As far as I know, ALSA is only for audio, so I don't get that part.

Since liquidsoap uses flat RGB format internally then all that is left seem
to be to make a ocaml based interface to a codec lib or maybe an external
decoding software like ffmpeg (even better if possible, since you get all
input codec that ffmpeg supports)
I agree here. All that is left is to use ffmpeg to produce RGB frames.
