Is this API stable? (I have heard voices that the external library
wrapper shouldn't aim at a moving target.)

If so, can the API/version be detected (e.g. vs. the one on master), or
will the compile against a build from master just fail? (Or is this
branch used only because ffmpeg_plugin exists only on this branch?)

But your configure modifications don't use it. Will the pkgconfig file
go upstream/master any time soon?

I still recommend to merge these two, which is common practice.
