ffmpeg to avconv

Links: - avconv, lavf - ffmpeg still developed (xvidcore) (x264)   x264 settings
Edit: Ffmpeg ( was forked to avconv ( Both libav and ffmpeg both still use the libavcodec, but libav 0.8 appears to be the last to even be compatible with the previous ffmpeg. This post is to determine installation order for a robust avconv and describe any command changes from ffmpeg. So far (02/17/2012) order appears: 1) libav (includes libavcodec) 2) x264, 3) xvidcore

ffmpeg/avconv fork

Some confusion exists with the fork. Both ffmpeg and avconv use the same old ffmpeg logo seen here. Additionally, both are touting their use of libavcodec, so that it's unclear which project now has the most stable, fastest version of libavcodec. For now letting it go until I can get clarification on these issues.
