Okay, my bad, sort of :-).

I went to the ffmpeg home page, followed the link to the "current" doxygen
documentation link, and finally got to an updated an (presumably) working

The only one to really blame, I guess, is google ( is that like blaming
g*d?), since that is how I got the first, outdated, link. Don't know how to
fix that.

In a previous life, I was a sw designer/architect/company. So from that
experience, might I suggest that for those older versions of the
documentation, putting  (noticeable) text somewhere stating that that isn't
the "current" version, and perhaps with a link to the current version. That
would have saved me many days of hitting that brick wall. But then, this is
only a suggestion. You guys are the experts, and obviously good ones at
that :-). Thanks for great (open src) software.

And thx, Joshua, for your response.
