Yeah, supposedly the version of ffmpeg is none later than 0.5.1 (22140).

0.5.1 will be the release number, I think, the 22140 will be build or revision number (e.g. SVN).

Yeah, that won't make any difference - it's the same video stream in either case. I couldn't get my PS3 to talk to MediaTomb when I encountered this the other day and had ended up copying the video to USB flash memory. The symptoms were fast video, no sound.
