They are completely unrelated.
* dec_avcodec2 is a video decoder which uses ffmpeg, it is needed for
decoding h264, hevc, etc..
* opus is a sound codec

Both are optional but recommended. If you have vorbis or even mp3, opus
is probably not worth the effort if you are having problems.
h264 on the other hand, is strongly recommended as it is the most
efficient video codec.

Please be specific. What distro? What patch?

I don't understand the question.
As of version 0.15, the sound runs in a separate process, not thread.
If you start the microphone forwarding, you will get an extra process.
