Re: ffmpeg vs avconv

Are the avconv & ffmpeg command-lines still compatible enough that I
>could symlink ffmpeg to avconv & expect get-iplayer to carry through?
Most of the time, yes.
But IME get_iplayer will look for either anyway.

get_iplayer 2.99 (latest) does, but some conversions need versions
get_iplayer but I forget which.

That's in jessie, in stretch we're back to ffmpeg:
% apt-cache policy ffmpeg libav-tools ffmpeg: Installed: (none) Candidate: 7:3.2.4-1 Version table: 7:3.2.4-1 500 500

stretch/main armhf Packages libav-tools: Installed: (none) Candidate: 7:3.2.4-1 Version table: 7:3.2.4-1 500 500

stretch/main armhf Packages 6:11.8-1~deb8u1+rpi1 500 500

jessie/main armhf Packages
And libav-tools/3.2.4-1 in stretch is just a compatibility package:
% apt-cache show libav-tools Package: libav-tools Source: ffmpeg Version: 7:3.2.4-1 Installed-Size: 90 [..] Depends: ffmpeg [..] Description: Compatibility links for libav-tools (transitional package) FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge. . This is a transitional package that provides the following links: * avconv -> ffmpeg * avplay -> ffplay * avprobe -> ffprobe This package can be removed, when nothing uses the av* program names anymore.
