Hi Deigo,

I don't actually - I spent a ton of time trying different flags to get  
the library building and so some of them are probably not necessary.
Looking online it looks like the non-free one might be needed if we  
want to add aac support. ( which I was trying at one point ).

Really I know quite little about the proper way to configure ffmpeg -  
these were just the results that worked for me.
