After looking at my installed versions and what's available, I see that
both the VideoLan and Packman repos have ffmpeg and libffmpeg.

I am wondering which one I should be using?  Currently, It looks like
ffmpeg- from VideoLan is installed.  There are newer
version in both repos at the time:

VideoLan Repository:
Packman Repository:  0.4.9-10.pm.svn20080512

They are using different versioning methods, so I don't know which one
is newer and apart from that, I don't know if one is more stable/better
than the other.

Any experiences with ffmpeg from either?  Should I be using one over the
