I've subscribed to the dev list we'll see where it leads, but one
problem I can see already is that it bundles ffmpeg, so the package
would have to be hosted on a 3rd party repo (RPMFusion or atrpms).
Even then, bundled libraries are still discouraged. Hopefully they
don't customize it and can use the system installed ffmpeg...
