Probably a good place to start would be:
https://ffmpeg.org/developer.html <https://ffmpeg.org/developer.html>
https://ffmpeg.org/developer.html#Submitting-patches <https://ffmpeg.org/developer.html#Submitting-patches>

as for looking for things to fix, most people add features they are using, or fix/enhance functionality they rely on.
if you want to look at bugs:
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/query?status=new&status=open&status=reopened&col=id&col=summary&col=status&col=type&col=component&col=version&col=time&col=changetime&order=priority&report=1 <https://trac.ffmpeg.org/query?status=new&status=open&status=reopened&col=id&col=summary&col=status&col=type&col=component&col=version&col=time&col=changetime&order=priority&report=1>

and the overall wiki:
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki <https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki>

Good luck

- Grady
