in the sense that using video formats as permanent storage for images is 
unsuitable for my application.
ffmpeg would be then one more unneccessary layer in my application design
- bringing its own latency (of image retrieval)
- needs much time and effort (managing ffmpeg as processes or 
programming the ffmpeg libraries, or coping with connection failures )

the idea now is to use ffmpeg to create video files at user request, 
that way it is much simpler for me.
