Re: [vox-tech] inline keyword solves "undefined reference" issue

Thanks Jeff. However, the header file of those C routines are included in ffmpegmgr.h, which is in turn included by ffmpegmgr.cpp.

The "undefined reference " normally indicates that the functions's definitions are not found, and it takes place when doing the linker. The libraries, libavcodec, etc, have been specified from the g++ command line, and seems to work - only that I need to make the encapulated member function in ffmpegmgr.cpp inline to eliminate the linker error:

inline void FFMpegMgr::new_video_stream(AVFormatContext *oc)
    st = av_new_stream(oc, oc->nb_streams);

Also, the lib that I specified is *.a, will it be different if the lib is *.so ?

Seems more likely that you haven't included the declarations for the C routines in your cpp file. Would need to see more context to diagnose.
