compileing avidemux with MPEG support

I want to use avidemux to create videos that can be burned onto a (S)VCD but when I select save as mpeg I get a message sayind that it is not complied with mpeg support. Does this mean I need to compile mjpeg tools which for me runs the configure script but fails at make. If I need Mjpeg tools can I get a list af dependences and instructions on how to build it. Will post the error message if you want to see it.

I'm still tring to figure this out. I reinstalled avidemux today and now it will play mp3 sound but I am still unable to encode the file as an mpeg for a (s)vcd. I downloaded rpm's of mjpegtools and ran it in package manager and it needed four files:,,, Libforms and lib quicktime I downloaded but when I typed the other two into rpmfind one of them was glibc and the other was xfree. I tried installling mjpeg form source and it said that "Avifile divx encoding support: false" and "Quicktime playback/recording: false". When I do a make the error seems to be caused by the following: "lav_io.c:86:Warning: 'Put_int4' defined but not used. I googled this got one site and it seened like the guy cd'ed to mpeg2enc and ran make and make install. I tried it and it made the binary file mpeg2enc. I recomplied avidemux and still I can't create a mpeg from avi(divx format).

I have to type the error messages so they may not be the samebut they should be close enough to the orignals.

Hrm... I had similar problems. You may just need to create a symlink in your /usr/lib directory. Check there for any variations on the required files that you are missing and then see if creating the needed file as a symlink to one of those works...
