I think there is a lot of useful documentation, but the primary problem I
see is that it's scattered. What FFmpeg really needs is organized, we'll
structured documentation and tutorials. Dranger's are the best organized
but incompatible with the current API, and to someone just getting into
FFmpeg and audio/video, it's not obvious how to update it all.

We've got useful documentation, but it's so scattered and often
disorganized or not presented well (i.e. a massive wall of text) that I
think it's problematic.
