gstreamer has a plugin framework, including ffmpeg plugins. Would that do?

But yes, I too see the configure's component selection switches
ultimately turning into something that enable the inclusion of various
coexisting interfaces for subsequent runtime selection.


The day Gnash requires GStreamer is the day I stop using it. I've got

on my system.
