Description Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2019-05-24 05:04:34 UTC
Nothing should depend on the known vulnerable multimedia/ffmpeg0.  Either patch
it to support modern ffmpeg or remove it.  This project appears to be unmaintained
upstream with the distfile only available from LOCAL/ahze so the second option
would probably be for the best.
Comment 1 Tobias Kortkamp freebsd_committer 2019-05-24 06:20:34 UTC
PLD Linux seems to have a bunch of patches for modern ffmpeg support if the
port really should be preserved:

Author: riggs
Date: Sun Jun  2 10:14:25 UTC 2019
New revision: 503301
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/503301

Log:
  Mark DEPRECATED with expiration date 2019-06-15

  Rationale:
  There has been no active development for several years. The port also
  depends on other outdated, unmaintained code, most notably ffmpeg0
  which is also scheduled for removal on 2019-06-15.
  The functionality provided by this port is available through
  multimedia/ffmpeg, which is actively maintained.
