Can't you download the sources as described on http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/download.html and then compile it?

Hello,
I tried to build ffmpeg using ffmpeg git as per the link provided by you. But while compilation i m getting an error in makefile..like

make: fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 5: unexpected end of line seen..

I am trying for ffmpeg installation from last 5 days bt no luck.. I am getting stuck with the same compilation error as above.. Do you have any alternative to get out of this.. Plz do reply as early as possible..

That's weird... Could you post the output of
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. head Makefile
please? Although I'd be surprised if something was wrong with the makefile... But then, you're using Solaris and I don't know, if the makefile is thought for that. There might be something "wrong" with the configure file too...

Actually, this might work for you - there you can get ffmpeg packed for Solaris 10.

Ah, I just found this:
You can install ffmpeg on Solaris from Blastwave packages, but it's horribly outdated. The next alternative is to recompile from source, but from experience I can tell you that this is going to be a royal pain because of ABI differences in gcc and the Sun compiler (used by Blastwave). You'll need to recompile all ffmpeg dependencies from source too.
I myself have ffmpeg (version: 3:0.cvs20070307-5ubuntu7+medibuntu1) installed on a Linux system and here are the dependencies:
  • libavcodec1d (>= 0.cvs20070307),
  • libavformat1d (>= 0.cvs20070307),
  • libavutil1d (>= 0.cvs20070307),
  • libc6 (>= 2.7-1),
  • libfreetype6 (>= 2.3.5),
  • libimlib2,
  • libsdl1.2debian (>= 1.2.10-1),
  • libswscale1d (>= 0.cvs20070307)
I hope, that helps.
