[FFmpeg-user] I'm playing audio on my Linux PC from the WWW. Can I record it to a file with ffmpeg?

This is not FFmpeg but an intentionally broken version
with several hundred known bugs not present in FFmpeg,
some of them security-relevant. Please understand that
we therefore cannot support it here, see
http://ffmpeg.org/download.html for supported versions.
(Do NOT use the PPA, it is horribly outdated.)
