Motion - Support Question 2013x 07x 07x 185426

ffmpeg_open: avcodec_open - could not open codec mpeg4

Question

I build ffmpeg RPM and motion RPM for pidora on my raspberry pi. ffmpeg: FFmpeg version 0.6.6, Copyright (c) 2000-2010 the FFmpeg developers built on Jul 4 2013 10:28:23 with gcc 4.7.2 20120921 (Red Hat 4.7.2-2) configuration: --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib --shlibdir=/usr/lib --mandir=/usr/share/man --incdir=/usr/include --disable-avisynth --enable-avfilter --enable-avfilter-lavf --enable-libdc1394 --enable-libdirac --enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad --enable-libfaadbin --enable-libgsm --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-librtmp --enable-libschroedinger --enable-libspeex --enable-libtheora --enable-libx264 --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-postproc --enable-pthreads --enable-shared --enable-swscale --enable-vdpau --enable-version3 --enable-x11grab libavutil 50.15. 1 / 50.15. 1 libavcodec 52.72. 2 / 52.72. 2 libavformat 52.64. 2 / 52.64. 2 libavdevice 52. 2. 0 / 52. 2. 0 libavfilter 1.19. 0 / 1.19. 0 libswscale 0.11. 0 / 0.11. 0 libpostproc 51. 2. 0 / 51. 2. 0

motion is build from the actual trunk using this ffmpeg installation.

When i start "motion -c /etc/motion/motion.cfg" i'll get the following error in the logfile:

Encoding using ffmpeg as command will work very well!

ffmpeg -f video4linux2 -s 1280x720 -r 25 -i /dev/video0 -vcodec mpeg4 TEST-VIDEO.avi
