have you considered using stackexchange as place to grow the community of
Q&A around ffmpeg?
there is a proposal called Broadcast and Media
needs just a bit of support [mainly, voting for what constitutes good and
interesting questions] to get off the ground. I sincerely feel it would
serve the ffmpeg community better for user questions and howtos than the
as an example, stackoverflow.com is a programming Q&A site built on the
stackexchange platform and it is the leading site in this regard.
if you could spare just a few minutes of your time to visit Broadcast and
vote for good questions, it would be amazing :-)
