Benjamin also removed himself from libav consulting as well.


the usual reason for not being a consultant anymore is that the dev got
a full time job. or realized that they do not have enough free time to
work on small consulting jobs.

working on ffmpeg, libav or any other multimedia oss project is an
interesting way to get hired. or to start their own video related
business. :)

devs come and go, the number one reason is lack of free time. thats
whats nice about open source, you can pick it up and drop it whenever.
