The debian chromium package uses system libraries (including ffmpeg). You could take a look at the debian/rules file in the package to see how that's done, and possibly use that to create a fedora port: http://packages.qa.debian.org/c/chromium-browser.html > The reasons why that package is not in Fedora proper are documented here: > > http://spot.livejournal.com/312320.html Debian backports security fixes to the 6.x branch. Perhaps it would be fortuitous to work together on a jointly supportable chromium "stable" version across distros as is done for "LTS" kernels now.
