I'm seeing quite a few questions that are specifically asking about interacting with video in a programmatic manner. Not just ffmpeg command line stuff but also actual programming with video software libraries.
My first thought is to always move these questions to Stackoverflow but then I also thought that it might be actually not so bad to at least allow them to be asked here. We might not have the user base yet to cover these questions very well but in a broader sense I do think that these questions relate to modern video production.
Maybe not in the "creative" way but engineers who are building pipelines or even video generalists who seek workflow automation will usually want experience from people who work in the video production industry and not strict programmers who often have very little experience with video production.
Again I don't see we have too many people who fit that bill here yet but I don't think that alone is a good reason to not at least allow that type of questions.
What I would refrain from is to allow any kind of video playback questions that often get asked here like "how can I put a video on my blog/website, what library/code do I need?". Anything that isn't useful in the creation process of a video.
