This guide directly starts with using dracut. I think it's better to rewrite it with generic ideas how to build custom kernel, without initrd, and then with different initramfs creation tools.

However if you use media-video/ffmpeg you can safely unmask it for virtual/ffmpeg

Read the mpv wiki to unstand ffmpeg vs libav especially in regard to mpv. If you are interested you might even read the article The FFmpeg/Libav situation

However if you use media-video/ffmpeg you can safely unmask it for virtual/ffmpeg

Important

To learn more about unmasking packages, and making sure you really want to do this, take a look at the article on the Gentoo wiki.
