I'm using FFmpeg svn-r26402 – is this stable or not?

I searched and found that the SVN repository is old and the Git repository is new.

What should I do?

The FFmpeg developers don't maintain their SVN repository anymore. It's really not that hard to get the latest Git source though. From the FFmpeg download page:

You can retrieve the source code through the standard Git client by using the command:

git clone git:// ffmpeg

If you don't want to build the binaries yourself, you can also pick a static build for Linux, Windows, or OS X. Simply scroll down the download page.
