The top of trunk version of ffmpeg hasn't compiled in weeks. The 
workaround I'm using is to use the last released version.

Go to:


Then click "Clone or Download" and then "Download ZIP", then unzip the 
source into the mplayer directory. Rename the ffmpeg directory to 
something else and then rename the 3.4 directory to "ffmpeg".

Would it make sense for the mplayer build to pull a specific version of 
ffmpeg instead of top of trunk?
