If you're running a business that uses Libav or would like to use Libav,
you will sometimes want to have an expert, i.e. one of the original
developers, work with you to figure out an issue, fix a bug or add
some new feature.
This page is a list of those Libav developers that are available for
employment or consulting. The Libav project highly recommends these people
to be hired by your business. By hiring one of these developers, your
business can also (indirectly) support the development of Libav.
If you do not know whom to hire in particular or if none of the listed
areas of expertise fits your requirements, you can send an email to
the libav-devel mailing list, where it will
reach a wider audience.
As whole community we gladly accept bounties and donations to further
improve the codebase through the
Foundation for free multimedia technologies.
Such improvements include extending codecs and formats support or
developing new ones.
