I'm running Debian stable (squeeze) with the Debian Multimedia 
respository. I don't have avconv but do have ffmpeg 0.7.11 (package 
version 5:0.7.11-0.2), which recognises -absf but not -bsf.

The official squeeze package version is currently at 4:0.5.6-3 and 
squeeze-backports is 4:0.8-2~bpo60+1. What ffmpeg versions these relate 
to, I'm really not sure.

Are there enough of us running non-Ubuntu systems to have to cater for 
us, too?
