Cannot run multimedia players after last upgrade


After last upgrade on Current 64 (I don't know if this has been happening for some time, since I don't frequently use multimedia players), I try to play a video, but Xine and Mplayer, both of them, cannot run with the following error messages:

Code:
sergio@lohengrin:~$ xine
xine: error while loading shared libraries: libavutil.so.55: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Code:
sergio@lohengrin:~$ mplayer 
mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libswscale.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So I want to know if I'm missing something, before attempting some solution.

Thanks in advance!

Both libraries are shipped in ffmpeg-3.2.4, upgraded on Wed Mar 8 00:17:36 UTC 2017. Maybe you missed this upgrade?

ffmpeg was recently added to current (at least I only noticed it the other day) so if you didn't do slackpkg install-new (assuming you are using slackpkg) then it wouldn't have got installed.

I did slackpkg install-new in every upgrades, but for some reason ffmpeg didn't appear listed, I've downloaded and installed it manually with installpkg. Thanks af7567

Did you have ffmpeg 2.7.x installed from the slackbuild? I had that installed and also have upgrading SBo/ponce packages blacklisted so slackpkg ignored the upgrade.

Yes, it was installed, but not blacklisted
