I hope your goal is to port the patch to 1.83?

Its 1.83. Try to post accurate info.

Always copy/paste commands you use, never retype. Such a command is
rejected with "Unknown command: `r1_8_1'" so that's certainly not what

There may be an easier way, but this works:
cvs -z9 -d:pserver:anonymous at mplayerhq.hu:/cvsroot/ffmpeg co -l ffmpeg
cvs -z9 -d:pserver:anonymous at mplayerhq.hu:/cvsroot/ffmpeg co -r 1.81
After that be *extremely* careful: the version of Makefile is somehow
'locked' to 1.81, so if you remove Makefile and do cvs update you get
1.81, not the latest! But since Makefile does not contain an ID string,
its hard to know!
