Package for ffmpeg development

Asked by Jeff

Binary package hint: ffmpeg

To compile vlc manually (since the vlc repository can not be installed), we need the development package of ffmpeg - i.e., the header files etc. Install the standard ffmpeg package does not help.

My system is ps3 ubuntu 7.10, but I guess it is a general problem.

This is obviously not a bug in the ffmpeg package in ubuntu, but a user question. Converting it to a ticket issue.

ffmpeg is actually a set of single libs. You need to specify what development libs you actually need:

libavformat-dev, libavcodec-dev, libavpostproc-dev are all available and installable.

if you want to have vlc's build dependencies installed, try 'apt-get build-dep vlc' with the multiverse repository enabled.

Can you help with this problem?
