6 I like this application, but am not so sure about maintaining this... =/
8 Would it be reasonable to create a new package avidemux-ffmpeg in which
9 we create a version of ffmpeg with their patches applied? Perhaps we
10 can also remove the parts of ffmpeg that aren't used by avidemux to
11 keep the overhead of having ffmpeg twice on the system low.
13 I don't see any other reliable solution, unless upstream is willing to
14 stop bundling ffmpeg and get their patches incorporated on that.
15 But upon reading the progress on Debian, there is barely any progress
16 on that as far as I am aware of; and I'm not willing to maintain a
17 package that has 1) an unpatched ffmpeg that breaks it for people or
18 2) a bundled ffmpeg that keeps it from getting unmasked / reliable / ...
20 The other approach is for someone to attempt to try to get all these
21 patches upstream, but some of them are undocumented which makes it hard
22 to understand what the changes actually are done for; and at this point
23 in time it is not guaranteed that ffmpeg would take these patches.
25 So, what is the Qt herd's opinion on creating a avidemux-ffmpeg package?
28 With kind regards,
