Unpacking bz2 files

the more common tar.gz files can be unzipped with tar, but in trying same approach with bz2 files using tar -xvjf didn’t work, so after a bit of research, I learned that bunzip was the command for that, and after that you can handle the file with tar.

bunzip2 ffmpeg-2.4.2.tar.bz2
tar -xvf ffmpeg-2.4.2.tar
