We have ffmpeg-devel. We are planning to merge ffmpeg-devel into ffmpeg,  
but we have to do the steps first before we can do it.

1) Clean up more and fix ffmpeg-devel.
2) Get all ports work with ffmpeg-devel.
3) Merge ffmpeg-devel into ffmpeg then have all ports to change  
ffmpeg-devel -> ffmpeg dependency.
