GST-FFMPEG (Undefined Symbols Galore) on Slackware64-Current

For example:

(gst-plugin-scanner:10181): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/': /usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/ undefined symbol: speex_nb_mode

I've tested gst-ffmpeg versions 0.10.10 & 0.10.13 with the same problem. Each plugin listed with --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure="" has a different undefined symbol so never loads since it's blacklisted by gstreamer.

I'm pooped so I could be missing something obvious.

here 0.10.13 works fine with a small patch for gcc-4.7.x.

Personally, I've tried recompiling gst-ffmpeg at least a dozen times with various parameters for the option, --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure. The result is always a rash of undefined symbols when attempting to load I searched the InterNet and found another person suffering from the same nightmare.

Yes, I have manually patched gst-ffmpeg myself earlier and still suffered from these undefined symbols when attempting to LOAD Compiling gst-ffmpeg always worked fine after patching it for use with gcc-4.7.

Finally, in exasperation, I just decided to compile gst-ffmpeg without the --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure option. It again compiled fine and now LOADS without any errors. Your guess is as good as mine why gst-ffmpeg can't be compiled with --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure="blah blah blah" without spewing unknown symbols while loading.

I'll mark this thread as solved, but it really isn't ...
