Well, the choice has to be made, and making two packages is a solution.
Personally I prefer ffmpeg, and as far as I read it has a broader
support for codecs used in FLV videos. Even when compiled against
gstreamer, decoding of such videos (e.g. youtube ones) require
gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, so it seems to me that using ffmpeg directly is a
more linear approach.
