Given the original files on sourceware I'm happy to use ffmpeg to convert 
them to WebM at a similar bit-rate (though someone else may have more 
experience and a better idea of the best configuration for the conversion 
- I'd just be following instructions such as 
<https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/VP8>).  (If there's space I think we 
should have both the original files and the WebM files there, to allow for 
future reencoding from the original to whatever better unencumbered 
formats may become available in future to replace WebM.)
