I have followed this tutorial to download, compile and install ffmpeg on Mac OS X. This worked fine but I want to make an universal installer from compiled source for all Mac machines.

Please help me out on this.

I am using OS X 10.6.7 and Xcode 3.2.5

From your history I think you already know how to use Package Maker. So what's your exact problem? – slhck Jun 17 '11 at 11:56
@slhck: yes I am familiar with package making but I am not sure how to use it in above case. I mean what to do after ./configure and make command to create installable package. – Sandy Jun 17 '11 at 12:42
Well what exactly do you want to happen? If you say you already have the compiling done, do you need ffmpeg to be in the user's PATH only? Are there any other requirements? – slhck Jun 17 '11 at 12:47
I have done compiling as per the link but now I want to create a pkg to install ffmpeg on requird path, but I am confused how to do that. Earlier I created a package for java application using jar bundler and package maker which was quite easy I think but this case have c files etc.. so I am not sure how to create installer which should installs ffmpeg files to required places as "sudo make install" command do. – Sandy Jun 17 '11 at 13:01
I'm not that much of a software developer, but make install will only do a few very basic things, like moving the binaries into the right place. Check the makefile provided with ffmpeg to see what it does and then just replicate that in a post-installation shellscript. – slhck Jun 17 '11 at 13:05
