scanner.c:489: warn: Unsuccessful getting details

    I get the following errors for all video files regardless of type: mkv, avi, mpg, mp4, whatever

    metadata.c:715: debug: File example.mkv does not contain a video stream.
    scanner.c:489: warn: Unsuccessful getting details for /Media/Movies/example.mkv!

    I'm building from current git (1.1.3). Build and install goes fine. Audio files and images are handled correctly.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Your libav* libraries are the problem. Perhaps you did not build ffmpeg/libav with sufficient features enabled.

    I have pretty much everything, theora, x264, xvid, etc. enabled in my libav build. During config of minidlna the libav headers are seen and appear to be ok. I can open all of these file types with avconf. Do you know of anything paticular I should keep an eye out for? Or I can post my config.log of both libav and minidlna when I get home.

    My libav build should be ok. As when I build x264 it detects the libav headers and libs, and I'm able to make use of the libav features in x264 (eg. opening mkv, mp4 and other formats provided by libav* rather than just the native h264 stream).
