BUG: ./configure doesn't check avformat.h include file

I did "./configure" and its returned OK. But when i did "make" its returned ERROR: "ffmpeg.h:5:22: error: avformat.h: File o directory not found"

I searched on Debian.org and I needed to "apt-get install libavformat-dev"

Later, I did "make" and its returned OK (Build complete, run "make install" to install Motion!)

Environment

Shared libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: GNU/Linux - Kubuntu/Dapper

Ummm strange behaviour you had , let me explain :

motion search for /usr/bin/ffmpeg-config so it is found assumes that avcodec.h exists.

ffmpeg devel packages in debian / ubuntu have the file /usr/bin/ffmpeg-config

apt-file search ffmpeg-config
libavcodec-dev: usr/bin/ffmpeg-config
libavcodec-dev: usr/share/man/man1/ffmpeg-config.1.gz
lush-library: usr/share/lush/packages/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-config.lsh

So this file is include into libavcodec-dev.

 dpkg -L libavcodec-dev | grep "avcodec.h"
/usr/include/ffmpeg/avcodec.h
 

As you can see avcodec.h is there.

checking for ffmpeg autodetecting... found for debian
checking for ffmpeg headers... found for debian
 

Moreover the only problem could be if you have installed ffmpeg by hand but configure shows that /usr/bin/ffmpeg-config has been found.

I cannot reproduce your problem at all so that is not a bug but a strange problem you had.

Fix record

Thank you AngelCarpintero

Let me show more information about include file "avformat.h":

root@ronxu:/opt/motion/motion-3.2.7-test # dpkg -L libavcodec-dev | grep avformat.h

root@ronxu:/opt/motion/motion-3.2.7-test # dpkg -L libavformat-dev | grep avformat.h
/usr/include/ffmpeg/avformat.h

root@ronxu:/opt/motion/motion-3.2.7-test # dpkg -L libavcodec-dev | grep ffmpeg-config
/usr/bin/ffmpeg-config
/usr/share/man/man1/ffmpeg-config.1.gz

root@ronxu:/opt/motion/motion-3.2.7-test # dpkg -L libavformat-dev | grep ffmpeg-config
 

Moreover ...

As you can see "avformat.h" is included from "ffmpeg.h" (I translated catalan text to english text):

File include from ffmpeg.c:15:
ffmpeg.h:5:22: error: avformat.h: File or directory not found
make: *** [.depend] Error 1
root@ronxu:/opt/motion/motion-3.2.7#
 

About "you have installed ffmpeg by hand", I only installed motion-3.2.7 sources by hand. I installed ffmpeg and others with apt-get.

At this point I discovered some debian package (.deb) depencies:

libavcodec-dev .deb doesn't depend from libavformat-dev

Thank's again.

Ok , then i can close it as rejected because is not a motion problem but a missing package installation.
