Hi! I was looking for a way to play videos while you are in the 3d world and it seems that TheoraVdeoPlugin is what I need so i followed the instructions in the wiki page and installed all the prerequisites of the plugin, ogg, vorbis, theora... with no problem. The problem comes when I try to install the plugin, I download the svn version of the code, and execute ./autogen.sh wich creates for me the configure files, then i run ./configure and this is the error that it gives to me:

checking for __ptypes_version in -lptypes... yes
checking ogg/ogg.h usability... yes
checking ogg/ogg.h presence... yes
checking for ogg/ogg.h... yes
checking for ogg_sync_pageseek in -logg... yes
checking theora/theoradec.h usability... yes
checking theora/theoradec.h presence... yes
checking for theora/theoradec.h... yes
checking for th_decode_free in -ltheora... no
configure: error: "*** Theora library not found or wrong version."

It says that i dont have installed the theora library or is in the wrong version, well I tried with these versions of libhteora:

libtheora1.0
libtheora1.0alpha3
libtheora1.1beta

and always i get the same error I dont know what to do next need some help.

Thx in advance and sorry about my english :P

Edit the configure-file and change Theora in Theoradec... The function is in this Library... Then run sh autogen.sh and later configure... If this not works change the pathes in the configure-file to the pathes, where your library is.

I can't say, I havent done linux or mac compiles yet. Some guy on this forum has succeeded I believe. it shouldn't be too hard. basically g++ all the cpp files and link to libogg,libvorbis and libtheora. in theory :D

So glad to say that I am one of the ones that had success with it.
Many thanks!
