Then go fix phonon to use gstreamer and everyone will be happy.

You cannot do complex test when even the simplest one fails...

Yeah, I haven't too, though I sometimes produce something in mkv+theora
because e.g. there isn't a way how to add subtitle streams to ogg.
Putting video in ogg is suboptimal and if theora starts to get used more
widely, people will probably realize the need for full featured
containers like matroska for storing theora.

Last time I checked, ffmpeg contained open source but patent encumbered
codecs (i.e. not libre)... I don't think that classifies as proprietary.

Thanks for the links :-)
