(Leaving for work in about 1 hr.)
- Older versions (e.g. 1.0pre8) with static ffmpeg.
- Current stable (1.0rc2) with shared ffmpeg. ffmpeg can be shared by ffmpeg2theora, mplayer, sox, transcode, vlc, xine, etc.
Re which SVN revision of ffmpeg to use: Probably I'll just try out the latest.
- Latest SVN (SVN-rXXXXX) with static ffmpeg.
Thinking of renaming current codec packs to "codecs.uci".
Also thinking of dropping codec support completely since codecs are hardly ever needed unless you watch RV and WMV movies frequently.
(ffmpeg has a work-in-progress RV40 decoder. WMV decoding is ~adequate and is getting better.)
I'll be away until the next weekend. The "DSL chroot from scratch" guide is ~90% completed. Next weekend, I'll try to finish the guide. If I have time left, I'll try to compile ffmpeg etc.
