So, while the codec name and its filename is wrong (and I'm glad Andrea paz
found my notice useful), I now think that this screencasting/shotting probably
won't be necessary:

exactly that: I think I forgot to execute "make install". (I don't see the log
of it, and I do have the log of sole make run, and I always do log STDOUT and
STDERR when I build things. I'll be back to report if that isn't so, but it
probably is so: I think I forgot to run "make install".)

So thanks, Andrew, for (likely) a very quick diagnosis of my real issue.
