OK! guys..I am sorry If my English have caused you any trouble and thanks
for correcting it at the same time
I am not going to argue about which mailing list this question should
belong to (centos or ffmpeg).
My main objective is..if some person has experience with compiling ffmpeg
on 64-bit platform, please share the experience, not just a simple "yes" or
And Rohdri it will be really great if you don't insert your comments on my
English in this chain.

-> I am having CentOS. Again this was an FYI. Underlying OS is not a
problem. Just let me hear out your experiences with cross-compiling 64-bit
ffmpeg on any [OS].

-> I understand that if you dont know about centOS, you cant answer this
question, but I hope you know atleast one of other UNIX/LINUX flavours, If
you can, please answer taking them as underlying OS.

-> "I want to" - I dont understand why you even going so deep in my
English, rather going into my actual question. I asked a simple question,
"I want to cross compile 64-bit". What does it has to do with whether i
have other options or not.
