for vlc there is a reasoning as you need it for the kde backend iirc
plus is easily pluginable when you add the packman.

i think the legal team shall take over the build of chromium in obs
and Raymond if wants to continue to build shall do it in packman. Is
not a good idea to have a featureless browser.

regards,
Alin

Personally I don't have any problem with the proprietary formats support in
Chromium (altough I don't like them). But I'm concerning because the things
aren't working as expected, the browser should play these formats only when
the chromium-ffmpeg from Packman is installed.

As indicated, they won't. By removing those flags, those codecs will no
longer
be supported. Not even if the ffmpeg package from Packman is installed. I
have tested it with the change for the Chromium-dev package and that was the
result. They are lost forever.

As you noticed Ciaran (legal), came back and indicated that they should be
removed. So all packages will be changed and the codecs will no longer be
supported.

While I completely understand the reasoning behind making this
change.... speaking as an end user of Chromium... "Aaaargh!"

With no codec support... what's the point of building Chromium? This
is like building VLC with no codec support. It's nice and all but not
really practical for the actual end user.

I know it's a Catch-22 (a real can't win situation), but...
