Description Neal Gompa 2022-03-07 13:34:57 UTC
Description of problem:
When we first introduced ffmpeg into Fedora, we included a non-upstream patch to add an API for Chromium. However, this patch did not make it upstream and other FFmpeg builds in the Fedora ecosystem have dropped it, creating an ABI incompatibility.

We need to drop it ASAP so ABI compatibility is restored.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The patch: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/ffmpeg/blob/9af6474ed1945a12771b6b666d4d5bccb70cb65d/f/ffmpeg-support-chromium.patch
