That's very interesting. I never found that "General Documentation" file 
because I thought "ffmpeg-all" contains what the filename implies: All. 
This is obviously not the case. The filename is misleading, if the file 
doesn't contain all documentation. Wouldn't it be better to combine 
these two files into one file, which contains really all?
