Hackfest: Closing the gap on the multimedia stack

Historically, Fedora has been the only top ten Linux distribution missing a significant chunk of multimedia software mostly due to FFmpeg being excluded from the distribution for legal reasons. With the introduction of a limited build of FFmpeg in February 2022, that changed. Less than a year later, a number of previously forbidden codecs have been approved for inclusion in Fedora. Following these events, Fedora saw an influx of multimedia-related packages. While much progress has been made, there are still over 200 packages in a popular third party repository that could potentially be moved to Fedora.
During this hackfest, we will:
  1. find eligible packages from a popular third party repository,
  2. try to build them using only Fedora repositories,
  3. attempt to fix any issues we encounter and
  4. submit selected packages for review and inclusion in Fedora.

Let's close that multimedia gap!
