Method 2 would be to build Chromium on the openSUSE OBS with the internal
ffmpeg sources and then to remove the resulting ffmpeg library (which can be
retrieved from packman).

Method 3, try to get the legal team to allow a version of ffmpeg with
only free libraries. Lets call it ffmpeg-minimal or ffmpeg-free (to
differentiate and let people know it's not complete).

It would be useful, since it would mean all those projects depending
on it would build, albeit with crippled codec support.

Given the mess that has been going on with patents, maybe this is a
long shot. But it's worth including in a list of alternatives.
