[Linux] JavaFX Media does not run on Ubuntu 14.04

      Description

      On Linux, JDK 8 includes a native JavaFX media library, libjfxmedia.so, that is built with libav-53 -- that is, the libavcodec53 and libavformat53 packages -- so this package is required to run JavaFX media applications. See http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/certconfig-2095354.html

      Newer distributions of Linux, such as Ubuntu 14.04 and Debian Jessie, include libav-54. There are incompatible changes in libav-54 such that JavaFX media fails to run with that version of the library.

      RT-35770 is a request to include support for running on libav-54 and libav-55 as well as libav-53. At a minimum we must add libav-54 support (while maintaining libav-53 support) in order to for FX 8 to be supported on Ubuntu 14.04.
