[vlc-devel] Compile errors

I finally figured out the problem. Hope this information will help others.

After the standard VLC includes, I had another include from the Boost library:

#include <vlc_common.h>
#include <vlc_plugin.h>
#include <vlc_filter.h>  // This is line 17

#include <boost/thread.hpp>

Somehow VLC definitions have a conflict with boost definitions. 

I moved the logic dealing with boost mutex into a different source file. Now, VLC is happy.

Environment: Ubuntu 13.10

My custom video_filter code used to work fine under VLC 2.0.4. I am now trying to move the code to 2.1.2 and am running into problems. I am wondering if someone can tell me what is it that I am not doing right.

Thank you in advance for your help.

And here is my definition in Modules.am:

libpetermerc_plugin_la_SOURCES = peterWM.cpp
libpetermerc_plugin_la_CXXFLAGS = $(AM_CXXFLAGS) -I$(HOME)/Dev/Include
