I recompiled VLC as "./configure --disable-dvd --enable-gnome
--enable-ffmpeg --enable-mad". Still it doesn't work. Now I can hear the
sound and I see black movie window  (no picture). If I run VLC as "vlc -vvv"
I can see the following warning in terminal:

> vout warning: late picture skipped

When I try to exit from VLC I get this error:

> Multiple segmentation faults occurred; can't display error dialog

Any ideas ?

P.S. I suspect that this might be ffmpeg problem. What is the correct
download location of ffmpeg ? If I go to ffmpeg.sourceforge.net, it shows
no releases...
