I tried to compile those examples, but failed because it could not find
the file 
channel_layout.hWhat is the cause of the problem?  Is channel_layout.h obsolete and the
examples have not been updated?  Or was my build of ffmpeg broken 
(I built from source on the latest git checkout) and I have to recofigure
and rebuild ffmpeg?  Or is the problem something else?  I only need
to do simple things with the libavcodecs, so I think if I had a working
example, I can figure out how to code my applications.


ps. Sorry for problems with improper formatting. I'm getting the impression
that the yahoo email client sucks and is the cause of many of the problems.
