My system is centos 6.7

I am installing opencv according the official web:

I installed all the dependencies successfully, and type command according the instructions. But error occurs at make stage:

In file included from /home/hua/opencv/modules/videoio/src/cap_ffmpeg.cpp:45:

/home/hua/opencv/modules/videoio/src/cap_ffmpeg_impl.hpp: In function ‘AVFrame* icv_alloc_picture_FFMPEG(int, int, int, bool)’:

What should I do now?

I just hit this same problem with Scientific Linux 6.7 (like CentOS 6.7 also based on RHEL 6.7).

Following a hint at I reran my CMake command but also including -D WITH_FFMPEG=OFF option.

HTH, Simon
