Hi guys,
As there is new ffmpeg fork that is a bit alive we should provide it as
alternative to current media-video/ffmpeg.

So libav is stored in media-video/libav (look at it, try to find issues
and stuff).

Virtual package is virtual/ffmpeg where now i implemented it to have
versioned dependencies.
So there is virtual/ffmpeg-0.6 virtual/ffmpeg-9999 where the apps can
decide what they need.
Samuli pointed out that we do not slot ffmpeg nor support versioned deps
and always demand everything to be working with latest. If you have
strong opinion on that one please express it here so the virtual gets
redesigned to just simple virtual/ffmpeg-0.1 without any version stated
in it. I myself like the chance to express the version explicitly.
Virtual itself provide access to all useflags currently used in eapi2
deps. More can be added when required.

For what is libav i would suggest you go to their homepage or poke Diego or Luca whom are actually members of
upstream :)

And finally the list of current dependencies over ffmpeg see in attachment.
