Thats seams to be whats happening, i dont see any interest in
resolving this situation, so users like me are forced to look for
solutions else where, and this is specially for users that need to
handle video/audio encoding, they will need for sure to look for
another distro.

I thought Mageia policy was against this but seams i was wrong.
