John, I checked the bugs and patch. It looks like there's a fix, but I have no 
idea how to implement. Can you point me to or give me instructions please?

To whom it may concern, I'm new to Octave, but have been using Matlab for
years. I have lots of code written and would like to migrate to Octave for
reasons. I've installed the latest version and additional packages.
seems to work much like Matlab. The problem is the video package. I need
process images and/or avi movie files. No problem in Matlab. I've gotten
1.0.2.tar.gz and video-1.0.1_newffmpeg.tar.gz. I've tried everything from
manual to try to install and load. Every other package that I've installed
loaded works except for the video package.  I don't know what else to do
would appreciate a fix, if available. Thanks!
What OS are you using? If you are using Windows (mxe-octave), the ffmpeg
library and support libraries for it are not included.
See also Bug #46331 and # 46332 and patch # 8786

Two parts required to get it working:
1. get ffmpeg installed - you may need to download the mxe-octave repo and built it, also building the ffmped target before building the installer. (and then install it)

2. patching the video package - download the current package, untar it, apply the patch(es) to it, tar it back up.

Then you might have a system that has the libraries you need, and a video package you can then try to install.

I don't know if anyone has successfully used it in windows yet.
