    v1 v2  
    99= Install "Eclipse CDT project plugin" (C++ Development Tools) = 
    1010The usual way to do this is to start the Eclipse and go to the "Help - Install New Software" menu option. When the new dialog window shows, you'll have to do 2 things. The first thing is to tell Eclipse from where do you want to download/install stuff. In the latest Eclipse, the field name is named "Work with" and you should select the latest Eclipse version there. In my case, the option was named "Indigo -". After that, you should type 'cdt' in the search filter field, below the "Work with" field. The results will appear depending on your Eclipse version, so select all CDT related packages and click "Next", accept the license agreement and install all that. Restart Eclipse if asked.

    1214If there were any errors during the installation, you can view the error log by going to "Help - About Eclipse SDK", then press the button "Installation Details", switch to the "Configuration" tab and press "View error log" :) Simple, right? :))) I had some issues with certificates, because I was using Debian. More info here: If that's the case with you too, you can solve that issue by typing in console the following command: "update-ca-certificates -f -v" and repeating the installation process for CDT. Restart Eclipse if asked. 
    1416= Install GIT plugin = 
    1517You can use this tutorial: or you can just repeat the same installation process as for "cdt" but instead of "cdt" you need to type 'git'. The rest is the same. Restart Eclipse if asked. 
    2427= Compile the source code = 
    2528First of all, make sure you have c++, g++, make and other build tools installed. If you are using debian/ubuntu, you can type "apt-get install build-essential". Before you compile the source code for the first time, you'll have to go to your local git directory ("/home/<username>/git/ffmpeg") and type "./configure". After it finishes, go back to Eclipse and use the main menu option "Project - Build All".
