I am a maintainer of https://endoflife.date/. It is a community-maintained project to document end-of-life dates, and support lifecycles of various products.

We have ffmpeg listed there as well. With the latest stable releases of ffmpeg a discussion started about what versions get point releases (active support) at the moment.

I think all releases on https://ffmpeg.org/download.html are getting active support:

FFmpeg 5.0.1 "Lorentz"
FFmpeg 4.4.2 "Rao"
FFmpeg 4.3.4 "4:3"
FFmpeg 4.2.6 "Ada"
FFmpeg 4.1.9 "al-Khwarizmi"
FFmpeg 3.4.9 "Cantor"
FFmpeg 3.2.16 "Hypatia"
FFmpeg 2.8.18 "Feynman"

And all releases on https://ffmpeg.org/olddownload.html are no longer supported (end of life and no longer recommended for use).

I also saw the page https://ffmpeg.org/security.html where all versions with the vulnerabilities are listed.

It would be helpful if someone from the team can confirm or correct my above assumtions.

Thanks and have a nice day
