[FFmpeg-devel] VS 2015 patch

I tracked down the source of the confusion. The Chromium team has a repo
that sits between Chromium and the main ffmpeg repo. This repo is discussed


The trouble is that this page shows README instead of README.chromium, so
it shows contributing instructions that are applicable to git://
source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git ffmpeg, but aren't applicable to the repo it
links to.

I'm mentioning this just in case some other lost soul shows up trying to
contribute a patch to a Chromium only file. I'll get my patch landed in the
right place.

Thanks for the help.
