Are there any good links to ffmpeg/blender related configuration info?
I’ve built blender2.5 from svn, and I’ve configured it to use a local copy of ffmpeg that I’ve built on my system (from svn as well).
I’m running this on Ubuntu Karmic and while it runs fine, there are very few codecs available at my disposal for rendering out video from blender. I get a lot of ‘Error initializing video stream’ messages for the vast majority of codecs.
I’m assuming this is a problem with my ffmpeg configure script and possibly the settings of user-config.py in my blender build. I thought I had settings which would allow things like h264/x264 and theora, but they’re not working. I’ve really been monkeying with them without a full understanding of how it should work (well that’s a surprise).
I want to educate myself on this stuff. Any good places you might point me to?
