It would be nice to set up an automated build process for official debian/ubuntu (deb) package of FFmpeg. Since the creation of 'libav' fork, debian/ubuntu users have been cut off from the official ffmpeg packages and their only option is to build the ffmpeg from the source code or to use some 3rd party repositories or 3rd party static builds.

Is there any interest in implementing such an official thing?

It would be very very very nice if someone (maybe even you) do it.

No problem. I am willing to help with that, it's just I'm not an Ubuntu expert, so I might not setup everything correct. I would need some help (at least in the beginning) to setup all the things and later on I can do it on my own, it's not a problem.

Now that the false "ffmpeg" package has been dropped in Debian, IIRC, there is a better chance of getting our package included.

Please first consult with Alexander Strasser (beastd in #ffmpeg-devel) if you are interested in helping.
