In the source code, the plugins directly depend on the codecs
You mean they need to link against the codec libraries? Then the package needs
a BuildRequires for the relevant -devel package(s)! (And the corresponding
runtime Requires will be automatically detected in that case and is thus not
If, on the other hand, they run the codecs' command-line executables, no
build-time dependency is needed and the package can go into Fedora.
The line Fedora Legal has drawn so far is that it's OK for a package to check
for, e.g., "lame" being installed and run it if it is, and/or to tell the user
"cannot encode to the requested format because no suitable encoder was found",
but not to say "install lame to encode MP3s". (Whether "error: lame not
is acceptable is something which hasn't been discussed AFAIK.)
