I've been working on getting Chromium compiling with VS 2015 and there are
some tweaks needed to ffmpeg to get it working with gn. Currently the
BUILD.gn file defines five symbols/keywords that are missing from VS 2013's
C compiler, and defines _snprintf to make it safer. These defines are
illegal and do not work in VS 2015, , and they are not necessary because VS
2015 supplies inline, snprintf, etc. These are the defines:


The attached patch lets ffmpeg build with both VS 2013 and VS 2015.
