That's exactly what I mean. It should be at ffmpeg level.

Yep, its the solution for amateur end users who can afford to wait till one day their port maintainer wake up and upgrade the port :)

Unix OSs do not litter with self compiled stuff. All such stuff can be removed or uninstalled without any residue left. If a particular OS does not supply such facilities, the user must be sophisticated enough.

True. Giving a choice is the heart of democracy :)

It does not matter how beautiful the girl is, as long as you cannot use :)
Especially, commercial users cannot use too restrictive licensed software in their commercial offerings does not matter how new or shining it is. It's like spit, no use.
See what happened to the GCC compiler. It became too restrictive, even to the crazy extent binaries produced by the compiler also covered by the GPL license. So FreeBSD project and many others had no choice and switched to the BSD-licensed clang/llvm.
It's better run slow, than break the law until replacements are made. Those who respect law or have to respect law, this matters a lot.
