ffmpeg 1:1.1.2-1 [testing]

after updating today i noticed xine-lib was added to my packages.
I checked the dependency tree and found a new circular dependency :

ffmpeg requires frei0r-plugins
frei0r-plugins requires openvc
openvc requires xine-lib
xine-lib requires ffmpeg

since frei0r-plugins is a new dependency of ffmpeg, adding a bug for ffmpeg seemed the best way to bring this under attention.
This task depends upon

It seems ffmpeg can optionally depend on frei0r-plugins. That solves this issue and the huge amount of additional dependencies for people who don't need frei0r-plugins.
