The errors are coming from decoding the content in ffmpeg's h264
decoder, which uses a lot of asm. I've seen this before with H264
files on FreeBSD if you build without modern binutils/compiler.

So you're already building by hand, good.

What version/architecture of FreeBSD are you using? Before 10, I had
good results building with lang/gcc46 and devel/binutils, for better
asm support. After 10, I get good results either with gcc46 (or gcc47)
or clang.

Pass -cc and --as to configure to use alternate compiler/binutils.
