There is no need to install ffmpeg (the application), 
I absolutely never install (except if users report 
installation problems, which is a rare problem).

There is nothing "stable" about a release:
We (unfortunately) had ABI and API breaks within a 
release series, and we never intentionally push 
commits that break features.
(And just to make sure: All kind of bug fixes, both 
security and other issues typically hit git head 
long before a release is made.)

There are newer releases than 1.2 (although to 
some degree, only git head is supported on this 
mailing list, so if your problem is not fixed in 
2.3 - I believe it is - you will have to test a 
current version anyway).

Please do not top-post here, Carl Eugen
