The naming situation is confusing.

As I understand it, it goes like this (fingers crossed this table
formatting doesn't get mangled):

FFmpeg           ffmpeg(.exe)          libav*        ffmpeg.org
ffmpeg-devel, libav-user
Libav                 avconv(.exe)          libav*        libav.org
       libav-devel, libav-api

So you can see there is a lot of overlap between names.

The PROJECT known as FFmpeg came first, the Libav project was forked a
while ago.

Some Linux distros use FFmpeg, some use Libav.

A quick and dirty test: try to run ffmpeg -i at the command line. If
it works, you're probably on the right mailing list.

Try to run avconv at the command line. If *that* works, you probably
need to find a different mailling list.
