If there is the patent encumbered stuff in it, I suggest removing.
We should rather focus on making some codecs work really well, than
supporting many codecs badly. A video for the Ben will most likely
be transcoded anyway.

For example I use ogv heavily, and while it works amazingly well,
I can still easily reproduce bugs, for example when I jump forward
and backward in a large movie (1.5h). After some navigation in the
.ogv file like that, eventually mplayer will just hang, video will
stutter, sound playback will stop entirely, etc.

I will do some testing with the new images soon and hopefully make
it more reproducible and with more precise error messages.

Reminder to self: Setup a good request tracker on qi-hw finally!
