PayPal is listed on the Donate page and allows you to make a monthly
donation, but we don't have a Patreon type of subscription model.

One method to fund development is to sponsor development in areas of
your interest, or put a bounty for a particular bug fix or feature request.
It might be a little more interesting for you than the typical donate

It's fairly informal since there is no standard or official process to do this.
For example, find a ticket on the bug tracker and leave a comment to offer
to pay x amount to get it fixed/implemented. Or hang out in #ffmpeg-devel
IRC and ask there (not all developers participate in IRC, however).
Or contact a developer on the consulting page:


There is also bountysource, but I have no experience with it and IIRC they
take a 10% cut.
