+The FFmpeg development has moved to a Git repository, and the SVN


+repository is not anymore updated. r26400 was the last revision

s/not anymore/no longer/

+committed to SVN in date 2011-01-17.

s/in date/on/

+The SVN repository may be removed soon, so you're recommended to use
+the Git repository instead.

+In order to use the standard Git client to check out the source code:

-git clone git://git.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg/
-cd ffmpeg
-git clone git://git.ffmpeg.org/libswscale/
+git clone git://git.videolan.org/ffmpeg

Note that is gives read only access. There are details in the howto
for making a read/write clone.

+consider using the development trunk (see above), which is the only
version on that FFmpeg
 developers actively work on.  The release branches only cherry pick selected
