Klaatu, I did that in the past... however i think that is not the cleanest
way (quality wise) to compile ffmpeg. it does work though.
Ryan, looks like the same one from slackbuilds with minor differences.
Willy, It would be nice to flag this software and test it against the
newest version. I can help testing with newer version.
