Hi all

I'm tryng to retrieve a MxPEG stream from a mobotix camera. I'm using
ffmpeg 2.0.2.

If i try:

./ffmpeg -f mxg -i ""
-y pipas.avi

i have no problem. If i write my own sample code

AVFormatContext formatContext;

avformat_open_input( &formatContext,
"", NULL,
NULL ) !=0 )

always return 0 without message. How can I force the value of format to "mxg"?

I try:

    AVFormatContext *formatContext = avformat_alloc_context();
    formatContext->video_codec_id = AV_CODEC_ID_MXPEG;

but it doesn't work

Thanks in advance
