why cant we use another free video format that doesn't have this kind of trouble, shouldn't save us a lot of time and sake ? :D

We use, the format is Ogg Theora and it is free.
The problem is *the tools*. The tools for editing Theora videos are... let's say immature.
There are out there a larger number of tools which can also edit Theora videos, but they are intended primarily for other formats (and sometime work internally using those formats), which are not free.

   saya currently relies on the OpenVIP media framework..which uses ffmpeg.
   the reliance on ffmpeg makes its nearly impossible to include in
   Fedora.  I can not stress this enough, applications which have compile
   time dependencies on ffmpeg will be difficult to place in Fedora.
   Unless someone figures out how to patch out the encumbered
   technologies in ffmpeg, we can't ship ffmpeg. And even if we did find
   a way to patch out everything we can't distribute, it may not be worth
   doing because we would be in effect shipping a significantly crippled
   ffmpeg library since ffmpeg does not understand the concept of
   pluggable runtime codec support.

   Its a real shame, if we could ship a limited version of ffmpeg which
   support unencumbered codec technologies we would have the ability to
   ship versions of several multimedia frameworks and applications.  But
   the way ffmpeg is structured as a project and a codebase, makes its
   difficult to safely work with.
