while ungoogled-chromiun package definition now contains

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 ;; Don't arbitrarily restrict formats supported by system ffmpeg.
 "proprietary_codecs=true"
 "ffmpeg_branding=\"Chrome\""
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

does this conflicts with GNU FSDG?

Thanks!
Giovanni

As far as I understand, this lets Chromium use whatever codecs are
provided by the system ffmpeg.  Restrictions in codecs are up to the
ffmpeg package, not Chromium.

I confirm this is how it works; and that it isn't an FSDG problem.  The
source now mentions ";; Do not artifically restrict formats supported by
system ffmpeg.".

Closing.

Thanks for the report!
