Hi, I also read your post about compiling ffmpeg with amr support. I'm trying to get vlc to convert a movie for a cellphone, with h263 and amr_nb, so far I haven't been succesfull.
Could you post a recipe to compile VLC and ffmpeg with AMR support?

Thank's

Marc.

you must install amr-nb package from this page

http://www.penguin.cz/~utx/amr

and then configure the vlc with these options


./configure --help | grep amr
--with-ffmpeg-amrnb specify if ffmpeg has been compiled with libamrnb support
--with-ffmpeg-amrwb specify if ffmpeg has been compiled with libamrwb support


also you might need to build ffmpeg with thouse options too

1. get ffmpeg from svn
2. configure it with all amrnb/wb options (see an previus post of mine)
