Audacity doesn't work with the libavformat from ffmpeg as it the version is too new. Changing the dependency from ffmpeg to should fix this.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

The version of the Audacity package is 1:3.1.3-1.

Steps to reproduce:
* Install Audacity and the ffmpeg optional dependency.
* Audacity fails to detect libavformat as the version installed from the ffmpeg package is too new.
This task depends upon

@dankcatlord: Thanks for the report.

Will use ffmpeg4.4 in optdepends instead.
