Many thanks for your patch, yesterday I also tried to patch the code,
and I got a patch very similar to your patch, interdiff gives me only
one relevant difference: In ffmpeg_audio_decoder.cc I removed the
AVPacket stuff and used input->GetData(), and input->GetDataSize(), but
this is the same. However your patch updates the package to make use of
the shlib files, so I will use it, thanks!

With this patch html5 works also with ffmpeg in NEW or with the
marillat's version, this is a cold comfort, but better to disable ffmpeg
support at all.
