Package: ffmpeg-free
Severity: wishlist


  To be able to use video in some voip application i usually recompile an
  unstripped ffmpeg on my own system (using the nice get-orig-source rules).
  But i really want to minimize my non-vanilla debian pacakges to a minimum. So
  i just want the encoders ffmpeg ships itself, not the ones debian on libs not
  in debian at all. Unfortunately DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=risky requires the external
  libraries. So to be able do this i have to hack up the rules file a bit.

  It would rock if would be some set of DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS to only enable internal
  risky stuff, so i could do this without needing to do hacks in debian/ at all
