Understood and agreed.  The version I'm updating from is using FFmpeg
from 3 years ago.  Since I had to learn the project as I went, it was
easier to make a release with a 1-year-old FFmpeg first.  It shouldn't
take very long until I am able to put together the next release, which
will (hopefully) target a completely up-to-date version.
