@mkassner - I have noticed that some users may have git:// protocol blocked by their institution's firewall settings, which will cause the script to exit with failure.

All git:// protocols should be updated ideally tohttps or http protocols.

Change L78 -ffmpeg can be accessed via https via its github mirror: https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg.git
Change: L27 videolan x264 lib can be accessed by http: http://git.videolan.org/git/x264.git
