Might be better grammar:

If you need an account for frequently uploading samples or you wish to help
others by doing that send a mail to ffmpeg-devel.

Probably I miss something.

It is still not clear for someone need to help to upload a sample: who is the contact person?
Should we update a new section with the name who can help others to upload, or set-up/public a new mail list channel?

The new samples-request@ mail alias should be mentioned somewhere, and maybe added to MAINTAINERS.

Not sure if that is the right place to put it, though.
