Comment (by EricV):

 1) Forcing to test with git before reporting a bug is "for me" a non-sense
 as except developers nobody uses theses versions and only few people are
 really able to correctly rebuild from git.
 2) End user use only packaged version on their system. I hardly see any
 git version in any distribution,
 3) I reported this bug because it will annoy many Linux user when they
 will discover XBMC breaks because they updated ffmpeg so that you are
 aware of it. I just need to freeze the ffmpeg package version and will do
 so until the bug is resolved,
 4) ffmpeg binary incompatibilities (even in series which should not allow
 it) should not be allowed. It did happen in the past and just happened
 again. This creates packaging nightmare and conflicts between maintainers

 This issue is not mine its yours. XBMC packagers will not provide ffmpeg
 2.1.x until it is fixed or use internal ffmpeg version if distributions
 allow it. This means less exposure for new feature, and less quality at
 the end. I'm more concerned to be able to see my films.
