Sorry to be so outspoken but why do you comment if 
you don't know the issue?
FFmpeg on Lollipop x86-32 needs --disable-asm.

FFmpeg developers decided not to work on this 
issue. If you can provide a clean (!) patch that 
leads to no measurable speed impact, please step 
(It is possible or likely that such a patch cannot 
be written.)

Please don't forget that time is the only limiting 
factor for FFmpeg development: I think it would be 
very sad if the few active FFmpeg developers started 
working on rewriting x86-32 asm...
