I'm working on a HPC cluster than has OpenCV available but does not have any video codecs installed. How can I compile codecs to open *.AVI or *.MOV files using VideoCapture without having to install them to the system?

Thanks in advance.

I was able to install Xvid into my home directory using "configure --prefix=..." but now I'm not sure how to let OpenCV know the codecs exist and where they are. Can someone point me in the right direction?
