I was told that the latest git master FFmpeg (and/or the libav
fork, should mythtv move to that library) already have the
needed patches for the changes in gcc 4.7 (although FFmpeg
did provide the initial test case for a compiler bug in gcc that
was fixed just a few weeks ago in gcc).
That all said, there is a wide range of apps that have older
FFmpeg source (and other sources) that have been experiencing
"opportunities" with gcc 4.7. As Richard indicated, with
Fedora 17 defaulting to gcc 4.7, a lot of packagers and
upstream packages have gotten the word, but it takes
time with some of the less actively maintained packages
out there to see an official new release.
