This post describes an error and its solution in ffmpeg make for openCV install. It is based on Osman’s comprehensive troubleshooting of openCV 2.3.1 installing and configuring, but adds an additional error – ‘[libavutil/libavutil.so.51] Error 1‘ and the solution.
This error happens when running ‘make’ command after the ffmpeg configuration. It is a fatal error which directly stops the make process and fails the ffmpeg install.

Then ‘make’ – bingo~ errors gone!
