Install rtmpdump in CentOS


Hits: 9824  

I was compiling FFmpeg with RTMP support, but it requires librtmp >= 2.2.f

[root@svnlabs ffmpeg]# ./configure –enable-gpl –enable-nonfree –enable-libmp3lame –enable-libfaac –enable-librtmp –enable-libtheora –enable-libvorbis –enable-libx264 –enable-shared –enable-postproc –disable-yasm
Package librtmp was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `librtmp.pc’
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package ‘librtmp’ found
ERROR: librtmp not found or RTMP_Socket() missing, librtmp version must be >= 2.2.f

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from SVN. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
ffmpeg-user@mplayerhq.hu mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file “config.log” produced by configure as this will help
solving the problem.

[root@svnlabs rtmpdump-2.3]# whereis librtmp
librtmp: /usr/local/lib/librtmp.a /usr/local/lib/librtmp.so

If You still have issue … you can try magic path command 😉

# export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
