I'm trying to build a video editor with QT, which is implemented
in C++, on Linux.  I guess I could code my interface functions in C, then
compile that into a static library, then link that into the C++/QT 
program which implements the video editor.  Is there any easier way?  Can
I call the libav routines directly from the C++ program?  I have
plenty of experience with C, but I'm a novice at C++, so there might
be a real easy answer to this question.

I use libav from a C++ program.  I worked around that error about type 
macros by adding:


But if you're compiling pure C code, why not use a C compiler?
