i am using ubuntu 9.04.
I installed ffmpeg using 'apt-get ffmpeg'.
I was trying to convert an ogg file to mp3 then 'unsupported codec ' error occured.i found out that on installing libavcodec-unstripped-52 which replaced libavcodec52 the conversion was successful.
I want to know what advantage would I have if I installed unstripped libavdevice,libavfilter,libavformat,libpostproc,libswscale?
Also I was installing amrnb-126.96.36.199 from tarball after extracting it.I ran './configure' then error was
checking for patch... no
configure: error: You need patch utility to prepare sources.
What am i missing ?
Somewhere i saw suggestion to install autoconf so i ran 'apt-get install autoconf' & tried to install http://ftp.penguin.cz/pub/users/utx/....1.0.1.tar.bz2
but still same error. Actually I want to convert mp3 to amr where ffmpeg says unsupported codec?
