./autogen.sh && ./configure && make maintainer-clean && ./autogen.sh: The author of this package used the old autoconf which leads to problems like configure not being able to detect some libraries and compilation errors. We fix this by rebuilding the configuration scripts.
The Avifile package contains aviplay, avibench, avifile-config, mmxnow-config, avirecompress, avicap, avirec, kv4lsetup, avicat, avitype and avimake.
aviplay manages the input formats, the CODECs and the output formats to display AVI video files on your screen.
avifile-config is run by configure for programs wishing to link to the Avifile library.
avirecompress is a widget that takes an input file of one CODEC type and converts it into a video file of another CODEC.
avicap is a widget that displays acquired video from a Video For Windows (vfw) compatible device, like a webcam or a TV-tuner.
