Hi all,

After a careful review of all the pros and cons we, the pkg-multimedia team, have finally decided to switch from Libav to FFmpeg as provider for the libav* multimedia libraries.

The main arguments for using FFmpeg are summarized on the wiki [1], while the full discussion can be found on the pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list, starting at [2].

Finally we want to thank very much Reinhard Tartler for the tremendous efforts he put in place while serving as both upstream developer and Debian's primary maintainer for Libav in the past 4 years.
