Thomas, although the ffmpeg2theora software you talk about on the Wiki
page is open source, it is not "free," because it depends on the legally
encumbered ffmpeg software to function.  I am not clear on whether this
is appropriate to be on the wiki.  I think it would be a much better
idea to work with Thomas Canniot on a way of creating videos on his
favored platform which are not encumbered with the ffmpeg requirement.

Although your work is definitely appreciated, this how-to is useless for
people who are keeping their Fedora systems clear of non-free software.
I would appreciate others' opinions, though, on how we could solve the
problem with truly free software.  Thomas Canniot is giving generously
of his free time to create these videos, so we need to be sure to help
him do it as efficiently as possible.
