Updated Unofficial GStreamer FFMPEG Plugin Packages for Ubuntu 8.04

As a follow-up to my recent post about the Fluendo Codecs, I decided to take a look at the GStreamer FFMPEG Plugin. -- and because a new release had just appeared with a lot of new fixes, built packages for it.

The packages are here, are based around the recently released 0.10.4 release and been built using the recommended upstream build of FFMPEG's libavcodec and libavformat code, rather than the (much) older code that ships by default in the Ubuntu 8.04 release.

These should be drop-in replacements for anyone using the current packages in the Ubuntu Multiverse repository.
