Comment (by rjvbertin@…):

 No, I actually thought it'd be easier to stick with something we know
 works for us. I have no issues whatsoever fetching from git (you may have
 noticed that they actually host their own fork, which means that we might
 even have to use that if we want to be sure to use a "ratified" ffmpeg

 Even if VLC doesn't use any of the new APIs introduced in ffmpeg 2.8 it
 will should benefit from bugfixes and other improvements elsewhere. You're
 bound to know ffmpeg much more intimately than I do, though, so maybe
 that's nothing more than a rhetorical argument. I wouldn't count on help
 from upstream, so that's not a strong reason to stick to what they

 We'll see about ffmpeg 3. I'd *hope* that by the time VLC nears maturity
 it will support ffmpeg well enough to work with the official port:ffmpeg .
