I don't get this mindset. FFmpeg is an open source software project, and 
of course the main focus is on developing software. Further, everyone is 
free to work on it for free (without _any_ compensation). Outreachy 
candidates were even paid for their work.

So whatever you expected for Outreachy, why can't you simply make the 
best of it?
