This is an intentionally broken version of FFmpeg.
It contains several hundred known bugs, some of 
them are security relevant, please understand 
that we therefore cannot support this version.

While in theory all versions from 
http://ffmpeg.org/download.html should be 
supported, we strongly recommend using the git 
snapshot, it contains more features and less 
bugs than any release.

(Or in other words: Please understand that 
time is the only limiting factor both when 
developing FFmpeg and when offering user 
support. Imo, it makes much more sense to 
use the limited time testing supported 
versions than versions that are known - 
and intended - to be broken anyways.)
