    For the past months I have read so much that ffmpeg is better from libav for number of reasons among others including better response time to fixing security issues. If that is all true than why in the world would this happen??
    The libav media project fork is replacing FFmpeg
    Anyone might share light on this?

    Because when the failed coup then fork happened (A real mess it was), the debian maintainer happened to be on the libav side. So it wasn't something anyone had much choice over (An ego decision it seems). It is also a bad decision imho.

    This makes good reading and explains some of the current issues. I have to agree with it.
