FFmpegSource (usually known as FFMS or FFMS2) is a cross-platform
wrapper library around FFmpeg, plus some additional components to deal
with file formats FFmpeg's libavformat has (or used to have) problems

this media file for me, I don't care how you do it" and get frame- and
sample-accurate access (usually), without having to bother with the
sometimes less than straightforward and less than perfectly documented
The library is written in C++, but the public API is C-friendly and it
should be possible to simply include and link directly with a pure C

binaries are GPL licensed because they need to be linked against a GPL'd
Why not in Fedora?
It's a wrapper around FFmpeg with strict dependency.
