Please use the current release branch:
$ git checkout origin/release/1.2
(I reproduced your problem and it works with 1.2 
which is a few days old.)

FFmpeg is currently in the biggest code transition since 
many years and bugs are expected. This is very unusual, 
sorry that you were hit by this changes!
