How do I work around...?

Four years... you guys decided to cause me problems by removing url.h from avformat and now I can't figure out how the hell to work around it.

I'm working on getting the Vega Strike project back up and running and have come up against a compilation error based on an invalid use of an incomplete type (struct URLContext).

The usual fix for something like this would be to include url.h in the headers...but url.h is completely missing and no longer being installed with the standard repository.

Could someone please point me to any relevant documentation that would assist me with finding out how to update the code to be compliant with current FFmpeg standards for this particular item and working around not having url.h available?

I'm currently on ffmpeg version 3.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.10.1 which is the standard repository stuff. I am fully prepared to investigate this but I'm at a bit of a dead end due to my unfamiliarity with ffmpeg.
