I disagree with this interpretation, please explain why this is broken.
chromium doesn't compile with the current version of ffmpeg in unstable
because it is too outdated, this means I had three choices:
- compile with use_system_ffmpeg=0 and build_ffmpegsumo=0 (this means
drop ffmpeg support)
- compile with use_system_ffmpeg=1 and build_ffmpegsumo=0 --> FTBFS
- compile with use_system_ffmpeg=1 and build_ffmpegsumo=1 (this means
compile and ship ffmpeg-mt)
There was another solution, and this is now adopted in the latest
experimental package, Compile with use_system_ffmpeg=1 and
build_ffmpegsumo=0, but use the in-sources include path for headers, see
 and .
In this way, chromium doesn't FTBFS but use the system ffmpeg libs (if
they are available).
Unfortunately it searches also libavutil50, this is in not yet in the
archive, it is in NEW (experimental) or in debian-multimedia repository.
