Taking the ticket for BLFS 8.2 release

Just a heads-up. When I updated to a snapshot newer than, uhhh, 20171224 or something like that, lots of packages failed to build against x264. Those include, but not limited to:

ffmpeg
mpv (fork of mplayer)
gst-plugins-ugly

Thanks, will test...

There is a new version of ffmpeg. Please test against that.

In the git repo, there is a "stable" tag on December 24th, 2017, just before a big chunk of commits. So, the "stable snapshot", which is what we use, should be OK.

ffmpeg, mplayer, xine-lib, and vlc all seem to build and run OK with x264-20180212-2245 (latest stable). Updated at r19760. Releasing ownership until next book release (hopefully).

Updated to x264-snapshot-20190815-2245-stable for 9.0. Tested by recompiling ffmpeg (you have to, it links to an absolute version) and using that to convert to x264. r21974.

https://download.videolan.org/x264/snapshots/x264-snapshot-20191218-README.txt:

The snapshotting service is discontinued.

Please use https://code.videolan.org/videolan/x264/ to get the tarballs.

We'll have to create our own snapshot and upload it to anduin.

I was able to download x264-master.tar.bz2 from the above URL. It builds fine using the existing instructions. I'll repackage/rename the tarball and upload to anduin.

x264-20200819 has been uploaded to anduin.
