Hi Elias,

I see you've committed this now.  As far as I know, the ffmpeg API is
not particularly stable.  The video addon doesn't compile for me with
ffmpeg 0.8.5, for example.  If we'll remove (or disable by default) the
ffmpeg backend once others are added then that's alright.


PS. Please remember to mark API additions since 5.1.
