This is not FFmpeg but an intentionally broken version 
with several hundred known bugs not reproducible with 
FFmpeg, some of them security relevant, please
understand that we cannot support this version here.
See http://blog.pkh.me/p/13-the-ffmpeg-libav-situation.html 
for more information.
Supported versions are available at 
http://ffmpeg.org/download.html current git head is 
recommended if you are a user.
