Hi Hans,

An issue here is the dependency on ffmpeg. ffmpeg is not part of the OI
core; it is supplied by oi-sfe. Since oi-sfe is an extras repository, it
has been decided that packages in the OI core -- which are built with
the native OI build system called oi-build -- should not depend on
packages in oi-sfe.

This means that if you wanted to package Serviio, you would have to
create a pkgbuild spec for it, so that it could be incorporated into
