Error is pretty standard for missing/incorect dependency
Code:
[vlaja@isabal bin]$ ./homeworld.543
./homeworld.543: error while loading shared libraries: libavformat.so.50: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Additional info about libavformat present on my computer
Code:
[vlaja@isabal bin]$ ls /usr/lib/libavformat.*
/usr/lib/libavformat.a   /usr/lib/libavformat.so.52
/usr/lib/libavformat.so  /usr/lib/libavformat.so.52.1.0


On my disto (Archlinux) this lib is part of ffmpeg package
Code:
[vlaja@isabal bin]$ pacman -Q ffmpeg
ffmpeg 20071204-1
[vlaja@isabal bin]$ uname -a
Linux isabal 2.6.24-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Mar 30 11:40:06 CEST 2008 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2500+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux


I think that recompiling against latest librarires would help. Also since it is published like binary and not as source, static linking would help. I know this would increase binary size but would prevent problems with this or any other lib.

Arf...

/me wonders what the world would be like if the ffmpeg dev were actually having _real_ releases of their project...

Sorry neosisani, it is indeed an API breakage from ffmpeg, it happens almost every time. You will have to recompile the binary from the source if you want it to work.

Finally, concerning including a snapshot of ffmpeg, yes it would solve some problems, but I don't like this workaround... If shared libraries have been invented, there is a reason...
Obviously, the ffmpeg devs do not know it and do not care about it, neither about their users or developpers using their work... :(
