Perhaps the interim solution to this is to have an additional, alternative ffmpeg package that is automatically built upon installation, eg. make-ffmpeg-nonfree-package. It works for Google Earth.

Although it's a slightly clunky way of solving the issue, and there are many build dependancies, it'll keep the functionality in Ubuntu without infringing anyone's I.P., or confusing folk that tend to shy away from getting their hands dirty in the console.

Any thoughts?
