[FFmpeg-user] Problem Compiling ffmpeg

Hi Moritz,

thank you and all others for help. I tested ffmpeg on the AM335. It works. For example I can extract pictures 
from an avi file. 

I think some of my problems came from the point that I have used only Windows in the last ten years.

The configuration script is good, but at some options I didn't know what I have to set.

I always wanted to compile ffmpeg separately and not in Eclipse. I need the libraries for the Project
in the IDE.

Many thanks for help.

You are using the (native) program "strip" and not the (cross) program "arm-cortexa8-linux-gnueabihf-strip".

The former does not handle the cross binaries, and therefore errors out.

The latter would have been used if you had not ignored Carl's hint at using "--cross-prefix".

(I personally don't see the point of configuring and using an IDE to build a project which already has a perfectly working configure/make flow. But that's just me.)
