could someone please add a note about the deprecated message.

something like:

users on debian and ubuntu may have seen this message when using ffmpeg
 This program is only provided for compatibility and will be removed in
a future release. Please use avconv instead."

this message was in the libav.org version of the ffmpeg program.
this message has confused many users and caused us a lot of user
support issues. if you see this message it means you are using
libav.org's ffmpeg and not our ffmpeg. please use "apt-get install
ffmpeg" to use the correct ffmpeg program.

i think it would help. although i can already see it causing flames.
