aha and that is why i had a few years ago snapshot builds where the
whole output video in several formats was colored green and full
with stripes by using the same command lines as before which went
away some snapshots later

foegt it - the attitude "you have to use always the latest snapshot"
is ffmpeg-only and bullshit by all respect to the software and
the developers

you have to realize that the ordinary enduser is not in the position
to run always the latest snapshot may it be by cross-dependencies
or the missing and ofr a user not needed knowledge to build from
source at all
