and what has that to do with "git project requires continuous access to

that you can't figure out how to build sofwtare is a different story and
not ffmpeg related

what about a newer Ubuntu or some serious distribution given that "your
meson version is too old 0.40.1 wanted 0.47" is a joke in 2020
