What I have done up to now is maintain the ffmpeg history in 
MythTV/FFmpeg, and copy it over into MythTV when moving to a new 
version. This does create a large commit with a lot of extraneous 
changes, and we live with that. The Actual history would be in 

At this point we should not be updating 
https://github.com/MythTV/FFmpeg/tree/release/4.4. All updating should 
be in  https://github.com/MythTV/FFmpeg/tree/master. Eventually we will 
merge the real FFmpeg master into MythTV/FFmpeg/master, but only up to 
the point where they branched off version 5. Then create our own version 
5 from that point and merge in FFmpeg version 5 branch into our version 
5 branch.
