malloc Wrote:Not a good reason to throw in a new library. Let's figure this out. What is the error message you without it? Does the --enable/disable-altivec flag in configuring ffmpeg change this error?
It is not a new library, it was already linked inside one of the ffmpeg libraries inside build_xmbc.sh.
The only difference is that libfaac was taken from /usr/lib/libfaac.a or something like this.
I activated the flag altivec only for performance purposes, I tried with and without and I have better FPS with. I imagine altivec is not possible on intel computers ?
