1. What do I need to compile?

You need cygwin on Windows, and generally nothing else on linux.

2. Which type of mencoder source I have to download?
The same source.

3. What to do?
./configure
make

If you wanted a generic build, then you would use ./configure --enable-runtime-cpudetection

You're welcome!
:D

Thanks! Vmesquita!

I saw that there are also builds avaiable which do not need that cygwin1.dll :?
But no matter ;-)

Ahhh, now I got it, thats why I cant compile on my athlon an intel Build cause I can only compile under linux by doing the? ./configure & make lines

And by this on linux will result an exe ? 8O

No. You'll get "mencoder", and you run it as :arrow: ./mencoder

Unless you made a make && make install
Then, mencoder should be automatically installed, and you should be able to just run it by typing: mencoder

Uops!

I meant I need a hint how to compile it for windows *lol*
I got now access to my Linux partition under windows 2000 via ext2fsd and can enter the "\root\MPlayer-1.0pre3try2" folder where I do see "mencoder"

I also installed cygwin via internet on my system Win2000.

What next?

Cause a simple adding of a suffix to that mencoder to mencoder.exe reacts in a message "Program too big for memory" :oops:

Hi inc,

nice idea.
Here is my compile (cvs:20040420, for AthlonXP systems):
mencoder self extracting file.
UPDATE: makeavi implemented, thanks VMesquita.

Sorry for the self-extracting file, but my webspace upload is limited to 1.5mb
:roll:
The compile is working for me, please let me know if you experience any problems.

Here's a short howto:
Code:

Download MinGW, extract the cvs tar to a folder and access it with e.g. E:/Mplayer and run ./configure (with or without options --help). Run make afterwards and if everything went ok you will have the mencoder.exe in the Mplayer directory.

incredible 04-20-2004 02:51 PM

No matter if CygWin is used or MinWG ...

If I want to ./configure

Its stops by "GCC 2.96 IS NOT SUPPORTED BY US"

I tried to install the newer GCC but it also stops with an error about an "environment variable" ??!.

Well .... it seems that this "compiler" thing is not my friend! :(

vmesquita 04-20-2004 02:57 PM

Gcc 2.96 is abuggy version that nobody support, looks like for some reason you got cygwin with this version. :(
My advice: if you got broadband, wipe the cygwin folder and install folder, and download and install everything all over again. I'll be simpler than trying to fix. :wink:

Krassi 04-20-2004 02:59 PM

@inc:
Which MSYS-Version have you downloaded :?:
I'm using an older one and already having gcc 3.2.3 8O

incredible 04-20-2004 03:02 PM

MSYS 1.0.10.exe from here http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...?group_id=2435

You need to install MinGW and MSYS. First MinGW from here:
http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/MinG...1.exe?download
then
http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/MSYS...0.exe?download
When the post-install of MSYS appears you have to give it the installation path of MinGW (with / instead of \).
MSYS only has gcc 2.x builtin...

incredible 04-20-2004 03:47 PM

I did install totally from new ... everything like you explained ...


if I go into the menplayers folder and hit ./configure

this appears :

Krassi 04-20-2004 03:52 PM

This appears if MSYS cannot find a compiler in the path. Have you installed the complete MinGW package :?:
Please verify your path in the post-install. You don't need to uninstall MSYS, just reinstall it.

incredible 04-20-2004 03:59 PM

IT RUNS!

I had also to install that mingw32-make-3.80.0-3.exe

And after that I had (to figure out by myself) that I had to copy make.exe from MinGW to MSys .. if not the command window installer from mSys tells me there's no make.exe found in MinGW!



.... well .. its compiling :) ... see which issues will come as next :lol:

Yep, it is written in the post-install.

rds_correia 04-20-2004 04:11 PM

Thank God I didn't run into any of these problems on my 1st attempt on compiling mencoder.
Else I would have forgot it right away.
Good luck on it Inc. :wink:

incredible 04-20-2004 04:16 PM

Krassi, no matter if I use your build or mine ... the log of MencoderME stops by saying this:

a codecs issue??

rds_correia 04-20-2004 04:19 PM

Hi Inc.,
Most probably!
Just try a VOB source instead of the makeAVIS your feeding mencoder with.
Tell us the results.
Cheers

Think so. You're using a capture codec, right :?:
Have you tried with a dvd source :?:
I will have a look in the configure options.

@vesmquita: Are you doing a plain configure command or are you using some parameters :?:
Thanks in advance.
