As it is right now, we've disabled encondig as I do not want to install ffpmeg on our appserver containers and give them access to a PHP cli binary (they don't even have /bin/sh to begin with), but I wouldn't mind dedicating a few containers for ffmpeg if I can easily fork out work to them (via Gearman for eample).
Fair enough. I was just curious in case the use case would be something we could add to the core. That particular usage is of course somewhat advanced so probably beyond the scope of the product, but indeed the ability to extend the class should help.
If you want to implement that in the core: Go ahead ... less work for me
Though I somewhat doubt that this would make sense as most likely only a very small minority of your customer base would use that.
