Trying the new xcode 4.1 DP7 also released yesterday, maybe the 4.2 xcode is the issue.

Attila Györffy

Using vanilla gcc-4.2 from /Developer/usr/bin/gcc-4.2 solves the problem. Just compiled ffmpeg on Lion with success.

Ben Alpert

Strange, using gcc-4.2 doesn't work for me.

Kir Belevich

the same problem here, 4.2 doesn't help.

Attila Györffy

I just realised I have it up and running on Build 11A49a (prior to GM). Today I am going to install the update and will let you know if it's a GM specific issue or not.

Rich Wardwell

I'm also having this same problem on the GM.

Egor Egorov

Looks like this error was fixed in FFmpeg/FFmpeg@f04d434 on the FFmpeg tree. Now I get this failure:
