I'm not sure about the logo, I think that the zigzag has a better technical 
impact from our perspective but the fast forward logo will be much more widely 
recognised. However, FFmpeg is a technical project as opposed to a necessarily 
user-friendly film playback project. I think the zigzag is the more appropriate 
choice for us.

Anyway, I also didn't like the feet of Herve's monkey so I altered them a bit. 
I'm sure Herve couuld do a much better job and this has just been quickly done 
in a Gimp clone and is intended as a conceptual suggestion.

See attached. :)

Have fun and thanks for the monkey drawing Herve,
