You obviously went for the less hacky, but more correct way.

This means that, when ffmpeg was linked, it found a libx264.so with an
SONAME of libx264.so.152. So perhaps the libx264.so symlink was
pointing at a different libx264.so.XXX (i.e. the original one).

- Where is your libx264.so located?
  Please show the output of
  ls -l /usr/lib/libx264.so
  (or to whatever its path is - replace /usr/lib with the actual path
- Please show us the output of
  objdump -p /usr/lib/libx264.so.152 | grep SONAME
- Please show us the output of
  objdump -p /usr/lib/libx264-mv.so.152 | grep SONAME

BTW, I'm subscribed to the list, that's how I saw your original
question. You don't need to Cc: me on your emails.

Furthermore, instead of using screenshots of text, just copy and paste
text into your email. It's much more efficient and easier to read.
