transcode-1.0.2 (SuSE 10.0)

I'm trying to compiled the transcode-1.0.2-src.rpm but keep getting errors. The ffmpeg/avcodec.h file is in the default location '/usr/include' and is in '/usr/lib'.

However, I get this error:

ERROR: requirement failed: cannot compile ffmpeg/avcodec.h
ffmpeg/avcodec.h can be found in the following packages:
Checking in the compile.log shows that confdefs.h failed as 'FFMPEG_VERSION' is undeclared.

I've tried compiling ffmpeg from source (current SVN), tried earlier versions of transcode but all fail with the same error. This page has a patch but even this doesn't seem to fix the error.

Just go to packman and download the rpms. There's a full set of transcode and everything else for video encoding/decoding. No reason to compile from source when your using suse. Especially an out of date copy of suse.

The RPM doesn't seem to have all the modules present, at least as far as I can tell. In any case, I acquired the current CVS version and it compiles okay.
