I don't have an SVN account so don't count this as a vote. I should have sent this earlier when the name suggestion phase was on. But I havn't been in reach of my e-mails.

If you read this far let me tell you that names without ?tech? or something similar in the name might be misleading to a stranger. He could think that this foundation supports creators of multimedia. But when I understood this right you want to support the developement of technology for processing multimedia not the creation of content.
Just my 2?.

BTW I'd prefer
FFMTech (Foundation for Free Multimedia Technologies)

Best regards.
