Yes, it works, but having to put the ffmpeg:// scheme before the actual
gopher:// URL is quite awful (and a bit annoying).

That's a good idea, and I am willing to work on that. It would be a
"if anything else fail, try ffmpeg://", which indeed would make a lot
of sense from the UI perspective, and would work for any protocol
supported by ffmpeg (i.e., not just for gopher :P).

Let me have a look at the code. I will come up with something and I
will send a patch for review soon.
