10 I've been periodically fighting with mpv and ffmpeg for various reasons
11 for quite some time. Which is why I've been pushed into running live
12 versions of both. Version bumps on ebuilds that fail version checks
13 (like this one) is my first line of defence.
15 The reason live rebuilds keep breaking even though they're installed it
16 the upstream developers change to library requirements and flags without
17 telling anyone.
19 There's a bug report about this at which
20 seems to offer several solutions and satisfies none... It looks like
21 the decision at present is "wait and hope it gets fixed upstream"
