HowTo: Compile mplayer without XviD on Debian 6

Post by peter_b »

The XviD libraries that ship with Debian 6 don't compile with more recent versions of FFmpeg anymore.
In order to still be able to use a new mplayer/mencoder on old Debian Squeeze, I disable XviD (because I don't need it).

Here's how:

Code: Select all

$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/mplayer --disable-xvid-lavc
$ make
I also set prefix "/opt/mplayer" to avoid conflicts between the new the repository versions and the manual build.
