133 <para>
134 The details of how the <application>FFmpeg</application> libraries
135 are used has changed since this version of
136 <application>Transcode</application> was released. The patch allows the
137 package to be compiled, but some or all of the internal calls to
138 <application>FFmpeg</application> fail at run time (they report an error
139 and processing continues, but without any output).

141
142 <para>
143 For many packages, that would be a critical error. In this case,
144 the main reason to install <application>Transcode</application> is for
145 the <command>tccat</command> program, which works. Some of the
146 <command>transcode</command> options work - for the others, use
147 <command>ffmpeg</command> directly on the command line.
