How to instal the ffmpeg libraries


Hi!

I dowloaded ffmpeg with the libraries (libavcodec, libavformat, libavutil).
I followed the instructions: ./configure, make, make install.
But...
When I try to compile k3b or amarok I get the message that the libraries are missing.

Anybody has an idea why?

Tks,

JL

Make sure they are installed in a place where k3b can find them. I'm not sure if this is the right thing to do for libraries, but, when you are doing "./configure" while installing ffmpeg and the like make it "./configure --prefix=/usr/" and then redo the make and make install part. I'm not entirely sure if this will work, but this _may_ help k3b find the libraries.

try running as root
ldconfig
and see if it helps
and also do a fresh untar of the package or make sure you delete and config.cache files or things like that
