Description changed by ken@…:

Old description:

> We're using an old snapshot.  I was fairly happy with a random recent
> snapshot (with corresponding changes to its users), but dj pointed out
> {{{
> *(September 8, 2008)* FFmpeg is undergoing major changes in its API/ABI.
> The last valid revision for libavcodec version 51 is r15261.
> }}}
> Certainly, things newer than this are causing its users (xine-lib,
> transcode) to jump through increasing numbers of hoops.
> The fun thing, as I've just found out, is trying to get a corresponding
> version of libswscale which is in a separate repo.  Trying snapshots from
> git-web, I'll see if I can make them match up to the changes tomorrow.

New description:

 A step nearer world domination.  0.6 can use libvpx, later snapshots (not
 tested) includetheir own code for this.  Known to work with LFS-6.6,
 recent gstreamer, epiphany-2.30, midori (for youtube html5 beta) on
 x86_64. [ I couldn't get this to work with gnome-2.28, so I upgraded my
 desktop ].
