There is no binaries at ffmpeg.org.
https://ffmpeg.org/download.html links to https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ but the ffmpeg build 
there apparently is stale.

I'm looking at the contents of ffmpeg-snapshot-git.tar.bz2 right now. I see no binaries. I see make 
files & scripts and whatnot, so I assume ffmpeg-snapshot-git.tar.bz2 is source.

The whole point of this thread is that I can't compile from source. I'm stuck.
