The package in the official repo, it doesn't build against anything
but just turns the tar.gz into an rpm and needs to use a pre-bundled
ffmpeg library. In that case it was chosen the non patent encumbered
version from electron:

However and ideally, Discord needs the patent encumbered ffmpeg in
order to play  h264 and h265  video formats, reason why I'm hoping I
could repackage it and bundle the full ffmpeg  in Packman.
