    san-claudio @ sanclaudio-Latitude-D420 ~
    └─ $ ▶ cd ffmpeg-2.3/
    san-claudio @ sanclaudio-Latitude-D420 ~/ffmpeg-2.3
    └─ $ ▶ ./configure
    yasm/nasm not found or too old. Use –disable-yasm for a crippled build.

    If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
    version from Git. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
    ffmpeg-user@ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
    Include the log file “config.log” produced by configure as this will help
    solve the problem.
