Ok it looks relatively simple to build libav 10.5 on 12.04 and stuff it in its own little side directory where it won't interfere with anything.

libav 10.5 reads vp9 natively, and can output vp8 via the version of libvpx that ships on 12.04. That *ought* to be enough to handle import of vp9 .webm from YouTube etc, with our own vp9 output waiting for the future.

Got to run and do real work now, will see if I can wrap it up into a .deb later to make it puppet-friendly.

Agh, what are they on now, 12.04? I might see if I can compile avconv 10 on that in case it's easier to throw in a custom package than to upgrade them. :P

We arent even at that hold up yet. The current hold up is even getting 14.04 on the video scalars.
