[osg-users] Plugins errors for unsupported files

Hi Ricky,

The OSG uses the Chain Of Responsibility Design Pattern for the
plugins - so it's the plugins themselves to decide what formats they
can load.  This enables them to handle multiple formats if they can
support it.  From the description it sounds like the ffmpeg isn't
doing a good enough at deciding what it can or cannot load.
