I'm for
freemediatech.org / ffmtech.org

they're easy to speech / remember and harder to be used for fishing,
when you have acronyms that's much simpler, just add/remove some
character and nobody will notice.

Also I found somehow better Technology rather than Technologies, and I
dislike "FFmpeg Foundation" as being a too FFmpeg-centric name.
