There are no bug reports filed against that package. I downgraded to the
prvious version but it didn't make any difference.

My *major* problem at the moment is with wma files. For several years
I've been recording meetings with my Olympus voice recorder. It creates
wma files. Up until last week I've been able to use ffmpeg to convert
them to mp3 so I could further process them in audacity. Now all I get
is static.

What could have gone wrong? What else can I use to convert from wma to mp3?
