VLC installation
 
hi

I'm using Suse 9.0 and trying to install VLC.

I got the source code, and untar it.

When I do the ./configure

I have an error msg like this :

checking ffmpeg/avcodec.h usability... no
checking ffmpeg/avcodec.h presence... no
checking for ffmpeg/avcodec.h... no
configure: error: Missing header file ffmpeg/avcodec.h.

I think that the header file is missing in the source code. Has anyone encounter this error before ? How to deal with it ? (Don't suggest me to use binary pkgs).

Tks for your reply before hand.

:)

Hello,

You just need to install ffmeg: http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/
This project implements libavcodec library which is widely used by video players.

I got exactly the same error (I'm using Mandrake 10.0) and have ffmpeg installed.

The header file which it complains about doesn't seem to be copied anywhere when ffmpeg is installed. If you configure ffmpeg with

./configure --enable-shared-pp

and then configure videolan with

./configure --with-ffmpeg-tree=PATH

where PATH is the path to the ffmpeg source directory then it seems to configure correctly.

I assume this is compiling ffmpeg statically into videolan, although if someone could explain it I'd be grateful. I'd be interested to know if this is wrong since I'm still very much learning about Linux and don't really know what I'm doing.

I think you'll find that that the ffmpeg switch, outputs the shared subset of ffmpeg that the vlc switch then points the compiler to the path where they are then located for VLC to use.

I'm not a SuSE user, so excuse me if this is mis-leading, but isn't there a pre-built package for VLC in the SuSE software repositories? Why are you trying to build from source - that should be a last resort, especially for a newbie.
