If we're able to ship a build with no codecs, but for which a user could
download a plugin and just drop-in to their application to enable the feature,
we should do it.
That's exactly what we do for other technologies like:
* SSL (you need to install OpenSSL)
* MySQL and Postgres databases (build plugins)
Note that QtMultimedia uses GStreamer as a backend, which already supports
plugins, including proprietary ones. It's just Chromium/Blink that do things
