After I have compiled ffmpeg using shared libraries and run make install, I 
get the following error:

ffplay: error while loading shared libraries: libavformat.so.50: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory

The following allows ffplay to run:

cd /usr/local/lib
ln libavformat.so libavformat.so.50
ln libavcodec.so libavcodec.so.51
ln libavutil.so libavutil.so.49
