people new to the project join #ffmpeg-devel and ask us for help on how
to start contributing to ffmpeg.

usually none of us have any cohesive answers. mostly suggestions are to
review bugs or patches or code. nothing really concise or organized.

i've reviewed a few bugs and think these may be good starting points
for new developers to try. they might also be useful for qualification
tasks in the future? i dont know.

i'm not sure how to organize these, maybe a trac keyword? for now ,
i'll just post them here. if you have comments, suggestions, or just
want to tell me that my idea is bad, please speak up.

these have specs / open source implementations:

Missing subtitle format. ISMT (xml based)

support DICOM format (medical jpg image)

Support codec2 (os audio codec)

Support lossless mp3HD (abandoned? lossless audio codec)
