This enables support for building/running XBMC Eden with libav, tested primarily with libav-0.8. This is direct for the Eden branch. The master branch will need different modifications.

Why the hell don't you educate debian to use ffmpeg. Not only you use an external code but one that is obsolete...

And what are the supposed advantages compared to ffmpeg?

apparently (reading the patch), the APIs, include files are no more equivalent so it just complexify and already complex situation.

XBMC for debian was already available using standard external ffmpeg in the debian-multimedia repository with a lot more options...
There you find also dvdcsa library that is needed to play DVD so you have to add the repository anyway if you want to read dvd...


amejia1 replied Apr 13, 2012 is not affiliated with Debian. Furthermore, I do not recommend anyone to simply add the repository (especially new users). If you just need dvdcss, just download the libdvdcss2 package from there and install it via dpkg.

Who care if its official if packages works better than debian ones? Been using it for years without problems. Do you think new user find simpler to download a package and install it manually?

If you mean the missing RAR support, work in progress. If it's afp support, I will look into getting a patch backported to eden so that xbmc works well with the version of libafpclient found in the repos.

As for ffmpeg v libav or debian v dmo, this isn't the place for debating this.
