That's pretty well possible.

That would indeed be interesting. To get the source from the ubuntu
package:

apt-get build-dep ffmpeg-debian
apt-get source ffmpeg-debian
cd ffmpeg-debian*
make -f debian/rules build-stamp-shared

then you should have ffmpeg_g in the subdirectory 'debian-shared' and
can continue with the bug reporting guidelines from the ffmpeg.org
website.

To learn the version and the configure flags used in the ubuntu version
of ffmpeg issue 'ffmpeg --version' on the ubuntu ffmpeg binary.
