Getting Xvid to work with MEncoder
I'm running FC 3. Yesterday I installed MPlayer and MEncoder using the instructions from this page:
Everything seemed to work fine except that the Xvid codec doesn't seem to be available. I downloaded and installed the XVid codec as referenced in section 2.3 of the page.
The xvid package is in an RPM and I installed it using rpm -i. The specific rpm is: xvidcore-1.0.3-1.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm
I tried re-installing it and it says it's already installed.
Yet when I go to the "configure" stage, prior to "make", Xvid has a "no" next to it. And if I do "mencoder -ovc help" it lists other codecs but of course, not xvid.
Re: Getting Xvid to work with MEncoder
You need devel package, beacuse they contain files needed for compilation. On that page you have xvidcore-devel-1.0.2-2.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm , install that and you should be set.
