BUG: Motion doesn't build with latest ffmpeg

Motion build exists with error when ffmpeg.c is compiled. Even latest motion snapshot has this problem. Is my version of ffmpeg too new? For info my ffmpeg configure line was:

./configure --arch=i486 --target-os=linux --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/man --disable-debug --enable-shared --disable-static --enable-gpl --enable-pp --enable-swscaler --enable-pthreads --enable-x11grab --enable-liba52 --enable-libdc1394 --enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libogg --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis --enable-libx264 --enable-libxvid --enable-libamr-nb --enable-libamr-wb

I suggest the symbol file_protocol to be 'extern'-ed in the ffmpeg.c file or its header.

Follow up

I did recently a patch for motion ports because had problem you described above , this patch is available in latest svn version ( svn r227 ). So please get current svn version and try to reproduce your problem again , however you have to do a small change in ffmpeg.c to allow work in linux:


<#if LIBAVFORMAT_BUILD > 3345660 && defined(BSD)
>#if LIBAVFORMAT_BUILD > 3345660

Fix record

I've added a fix in current svn version ( r228 ) , please reopen if problem remains.
