 Four years... you guys decided to cause me problems by removing url.h from
 avformat and now I can't figure out how the hell to work around it.

 I'm working on getting the Vega Strike project back up and running and
 have come up against a compilation error based on an invalid use of an
 incomplete type (struct URLContext).

 The usual fix for something like this would be to include url.h in the
 headers...but url.h is completely missing and no longer being installed
 with the standard repository.

 Could someone please point me to any relevant documentation that would
 assist me with finding out how to update the code to be compliant with
 current FFmpeg standards for this particular item and working around not
 having url.h available?


 I'm currently on ffmpeg version 3.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.10.1 which is the
 standard repository stuff. I am fully prepared to investigate this but I'm
 at a bit of a dead end due to my unfamiliarity with ffmpeg.
