I'm trying to get ffmpeg working on xamarin using a nuget package called
xabe ffmpeg, which requires ffmpeg and ffprobe to be installed on the
device it runs on.

We are using an Android device.

Version of Android: 7.1.2

The xabe ffmpeg attempts to download ffmpeg and ffprobe onto the device
however upon using the ffprobe application, it reports that:

2021-10-29 14:03:19.319 2942-2942/? E/linker: CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE
"/data/user/0/*****************/files/.config/ffprobe": library
"libc++_shared.so" not found

I have also tried using Javernaut's ffmpeg android builder and install and
it reports the following error:

2021-10-29 14:43:18.662 4145-4145/? E/linker: CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE
"/data/user/0/***********************/files/.config/ffprobe": cannot locate
symbol "av_dict_set" referenced by

Knowing a way to properly install the tools on this android device would be
helpful. Thanks in advance!
