Adding Third Party Codecs to AEL 4.0
This page is intended for information regarding ARM supplied development boards additional to that provided at
ALIP Third Party Codecs Page
Note that the codec code must have been built & installed before the gst-plugins are built
so that the plugins can detect the codecs & build in support for them.
Some packages require later versions of python than that supplied with scratchbox.
You can provide this by installing python to /host_usr in a scratchbox taget which uses the host-gcc compiler.
Note that difficulties may arise if the host python version differs from that installed on the target.
Some packages will build target python executables against the scratchbox host python,
others will build against the target installation.
The ALIP midori is built using waf - this requires that the python bz2 module is installed
To build python with this installed:-
sbox_host_gcc_target > apt-get update
sbox_host_gcc_target > apt-get install libbz2-dev
sbox_host_gcc_target > cd Python-2.6.4
sbox_host_gcc_target > ./configure --prefix=/host_usr --with-libs='-lbz2'
sbox_host_gcc_target > echo "bz2 bz2module.c" >> Modules/setup
sbox_host_gcc_target > make
sbox_host_gcc_target > fakeroot make install
