current ffmpeg is not binary compatible with ffmpeg 0.5. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.ffmpeg.devel/100196 is the corresponding thread on the upstream mailing list that discusses the problem. Feel free to backport wmapro to ffmpeg 0.5, though. OTOH, ftp-master seems to feel to rather remove ffmpeg from debian, which would be very sad for debian. In any case, I do intend to prepare a new snapshot for ubuntu in the motumedia PPA. Probably with a globally bumped SONAME, because of the problems stated above. I don't know what this means for debian though. Might be a fun experiment to see how long that package would rot in NEW, though. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list email@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
