The following is more an idea and a question from my side:

First a background reference url to and an extract from the manual:

  * Download Already Built CINELERRA-GG
  * All of these images are dated 10/31/2020 and are no longer being
    maintained. They will still work on the version of the O/S in use at
    that time but will have none of the latest features. You should use
    the simpler AppImage instead as described previously.

  * If you prefer to not have to take the time to build CINELERRA-GG
    Infinity yourself, there are pre-built dynamic or static binaries
    for various versions of Ubuntu, Mint, Suse, Fedora, Debian, Centos,
    Arch, and Slackware linux as well as Gentoo and FreeBSD. If you do
    want to build it yourself so that you get the added benefit of the
    latest checked in changes,

  * https://cinelerra-gg.org/download/tars

  * The tars directory contains single-user static builds for different
    distros. This is the recommended usage of CINELERRA-GG because all
    of the files will exist in a single directory. Generally all of the
    necessary libraries are built into the static build, but in some
    cases you may have to install another library that is being called
    for. To install the single user builds, download the designated
    tarball from the ./tars subdirectory and unpack as indicated

I've test-installed and had a look this last single-user static build 
tar ball on current Leap:

  * cinelerra-5.1-leap15.2-20201031.x86_64-static.txz 2020-10-31 15:06   60M

    ~/cin> ls

    ~/cin> ls ffmpeg
    audio  decode.opts  encode.opts ffmpeg.opts  flv.dfl  format 
    plugin.opts  video

As clarified by Andrew in another post, the ffmpeg binary has not been 
packaged in the dynamic system build pkgs,

and as seen here: no ffmpeg binary (while bdwrite is there) available in 
the single-user static build tar ball.

So to my question to avoid user efforts to build CINELERRA-GG themselves 
in cases where the distro system ffmpeg version or libs are not available:
Would it be possible and not at least manageable to bundle also the 
ffmpeg binary tool with all relevant libs in an optional maintained 
single-user static build tar ball?
