Which should be the default in Gentoo, ffmpeg or libav?

I don't care about the default, but users should have a smooth experience with it, even if that means additional hardships for those who choose differently.

I don't care about the default, but it should be easy to use the non-default, even if that causes a less smooth experience for users of the default.

This is really interesting. In the beginning, I switched to libav, because it was the other way round. Do the libav people know that they are losing ground fast?

FFmpeg leader Michael Niedermayer has announced his departure from the project. "I hope my resignation will make it easier for the teams to find back together and avoid a more complete split which would otherwise be the result sooner or later as the trees diverge and merging all improvements becomes too difficult for me to do."
