Pick what you like to work on, i really cant guess what would be best.
And i think that working on what one likes to work on is at least as
good for success than working on what one knows most about. Off course
picking something you know nothing about isnt a good idea either. ...

Also you _need_ to finish a qualification task if you want to be accepted
for ffmpeg-gsoc.
