thanks for the info. it seems libsdl1.2.x no longer compiles on OSX.

In file included from ./src/video/quartz/SDL_QuartzEvents.m:24:
./src/video/quartz/SDL_QuartzVideo.h:94:5: error: unknown type name

This seems to be the case from OS 10.9 on (

Even fixing that by the described hack, there seem to be further errors. It
may be that ffplay for OSX is currently not available. Maybe I am missing
something and a fellow OSX ffmpeg user can enlighten me.
