Hi Piotr

I am still working on the ffmpeg 3.4 in bennettpeter. It does not yet
compile correctly. A new version of ffmpeg requires many changes to
mythtv configure because mythtv configure is originally a copy of FFmpeg
configure and it has been updated with every update of FFmpeg. There are
hundreds of changes for going from 3.2 to 3.4. This is crazy. I want to
see if I can make it so that mythtv configure runs internally the FFmpeg
configure instead of having FFmpeg configure merged into mythtv
configure. But that is for a future time.

I am working on the build, I have it almost working in bennettpeter with
local changes that are not committed yet. Once I have it working in
bennettpeter I will also update the devel/ffmpeg-resync branch in
MythTV. Hopefully that will be ready in the next couple of days.
