I'll vote ASAP, before the bikesheding about the voting procedure gets 

1. Free Multimedia Tech / freemediatech.org
2. FFMTech (Foundation for Free Multimedia Technologies)
3. FFmpeg Foundation
4. FFmedia (Foundation for Free MultimEDIA)
5. FFm.org (Foundation for Free Multimedia)
6. FFMF (Fast Forward Multimedia Foundation)

I'm against OMF, because I don't like the vagueness of "Open" (as in MS 
"Office Open XML" or DRM-friendly "Open Media Commons"). Sometimes 
"Open" just means "just free enough people won't complain it is
