That would be sensible; however, Debian has just transitioned to ffmpeg 5, 
removing ffmpeg 4 so this option is no longer available to me.  

After reading through bugs #453840 and #448681, I got the impression that 
there is a fair bit of effort going into porting -- after incorporating qtav 
into the digikam codebase.  I thought I'd jump in to see if I can be of help.  
Clearly, I don't know the code base at present, so that will be a first goal.
