2.22.  RHBA-2009:1323: qffmpeg

A new qffmpeg package, required for hypervisor Spice protocol support, is now available.
qffmpeg is a stripped-down version of FFMPEG including only a limited set of the codecs available in the upstream version.
This new package provides the codecs required for SPICE protocol support in the Linux KVM hypervisor and clients. The package includes no other codecs from the upstream version, to avoid inadvertently bundling or shipping any encumbered code or binaries. (BZ#488606)
Users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 should install the qffmpeg packages for use with SPICE-enabled virtualization products.
