I haven't looked at libffmpeg as a standalone library, but in case it's
possible to do so, maybe runtime detection would be the way to go. That
way wine binaries can be delivered without being patent challenged and
video support can be added by just installing an additional dynamic lib.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
