Please help me, I use DEV c++ compiler in windows platform. I build a
project in this compiler and add utils.c (with al its headers and functions)
to the project, but when i want to compile the program, it does not
recognise all the header files used in utils.c  such as #include
"avformat.h". It seems that i have a problem in including new library files
or in linking. Even i add the libavecodec path for new header files location
but still does not recognise them.
