Well the fact that you are getting these messages is a clear indication
that the distribution packager hasn't done his/her job properly when
packaging gst-ffmpeg. If they insist on using a system ffmpeg thats
fine, but it do require them to do the coding work needed to make it
work. Removing this console crap only encourage them to keep providing
their users with broken packages which in turn will reflect badly on us
as we are the ones who gets blamed when things don't work.

But as you mention it should say where the problem comes from, so the
message should include something like 
'Lazy and incompetent packager, please report to your distribution that
they have packaged gst-ffmpeg in a broken manner' :)
