Compiling FFMPEG via Visual Studio
October 6, 2012 Leave a comment
Turns out the reason FFMPEG won’t compile on VS is because VS doesn’t support C99. What a shitty reason, indeed.
This neat article does a great job of explaining step by step the process of patching the source code to make it C89 compatible (and hence VS compilable).
This is great because it eliminates one more road block of bringing the ARDrone SDK to Windows.
