Dear Reimar,

I do have zlib installed.

Ooh, I love patches. I undid the modification to common.mak in ffmpeg/ffbuild that fixed the stdatomic.h error. I applied your patch to configure, and checked that the patch I got with diff did match your patch afterwards. Then tried compiling again, but run into the original error:

CC	libavcodec/diracdec.o

                  from libavcodec/diracdec.c:39:

make[1]: *** [libavcodec/diracdec.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/media/sf_Scratch/mplayer/mplayer/ffmpeg'
make: *** [ffmpeg/libavcodec/libavcodec.a] Error 2

Should I have left the common.mak edit in place? Thanks for your help. I want to compile mplayer so I can install it in my own directory then bundle it with my software. But I could just insist that my users install mplayer on their Linux machines.

Best, Kevan
