Comment 1 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-30 14:58:16 UTC
Hmm.. which version of lame? Does downgrading lame and recompiling help?
Comment 2 Joe Roberts 2009-07-30 17:08:02 UTC
Have the same problem.  There are presently two versions (one version, 2 revs) of lame in portage:


Will not compile xvidcap with sound via either...

Comment 3 Patrick Williams 2009-08-06 14:04:20 UTC
Created attachment 200389 [details, diff] patch to enable audio.
Comment 4 Patrick Williams 2009-08-06 14:04:41 UTC
This requires a patch to the because it is currently testing for a deprecated (and now removed) ffmpeg function even though the code itself uses the new function.  I've attached a patch for this.

In order to get audio to work you also need to have 'oss' use flag for ffmpeg (can someone do some ebuild magic in the xvidcap to verify this?).  You also need OSS compatibility in your ALSA kernel options:


Finally, for me, xvidcap would only work if you recorded in PCM16.  Otherwise in mp3 or other formats I just got static.  Didn't have a chance to track this down.  Might want to have a upstream bugs opened for both the MP3 recording issue and the configure patch.  I haven't done this.

Looks good.

This is because of new ffmpeg, those symbols got removed/renamed. This will need some porting. :-/
Comment 8 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-06-20 10:57:09 UTC
treecleaners: please remove xvidcap from portage, because:

- The bundled copy of ffmpeg in xvidcap is vulnerable to several GLSAs and CVEs (this is not being used for the obvious reasons even if it's the only way to get working xvidcap "right now")

- It doesn't work at all with our current media-video/ffmpeg's in tree and upstream is semi-dead, nobody has provided patches to make it work

-> /dev/null

replacement is recordmydesktop
Comment 9 Michael Weber (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-06-20 17:19:07 UTC
It does compile against media-video/ffmpeg-0.5_p22846 at least with this minor modifications. Just remove some redundant info and unbundle the ffmpeg dir.

you need to apply the attached patch here to expose futher errors first, i.e. the patch is correct but only less-than-half of the fix
