Description: This is a stripped down version of upstream FFMPEG including only the codecs used by SPICE in order to avoid inadvertantly bundling or shipping any
encumbered code or binaries.
qffmpeg is a requirement for the remainder of the SPICE stack right now, although obviously the right thing to do is to eliminate the fork altogether and move forward using ffmpeg as available through Fedora.
for what I think about such forks.
If you want it formally - NEEDSWORK:
* Invalid Source0-URL - Package has no upstream.
* Consider your application to dlopen ffmpeg
* Package conflicts with ffmpeg
Ralf, agreed. It's dependencies seem to build just fine with regular ffmpeg.
Is this still needed at all? The spice stuff seems to have gone in without needing this package.
After some discussion on IRC, it seems this truly isn't necessary. Not to mention the fact that the links are dead anyway. I'll just go ahead and close this out.
