How to include x264enc on yocto

I have a wandboard-dual board and I am using master branch.

Here is my build configuration:


Build Configuration:

BB_VERSION        = "1.21.0"

BUILD_SYS         = "x86_64-linux"

NATIVELSBSTRING   = "Ubuntu-12.04"

TARGET_SYS        = "arm-poky-linux-gnueabi"

MACHINE           = "wandboard-dual"

DISTRO            = "poky"

DISTRO_VERSION    = "1.5+snapshot-20131030"

TUNE_FEATURES     = "armv7a vfp neon callconvention-hard cortexa9"

TARGET_FPU        = "vfp-neon"


I am doing a power consumption of video applications and therefore need to add x264enc to my image.

Now I have tried it two ways but x264 is not showing up in my final image.


1) First, I have placed gst-plugins-ugly-x264enc in local.conf file


    gst-plugins-ugly-x264enc \


and added this line to local.conf file: @PACKAGECONFIG_pn_gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly += "x264" to enable it.

This configuration gives me an error:


| Computing transaction...error: Can't install gst-meta-video-0.10-r13@cortexa9hf_vfp_neon: no package provides gst-plugins-ugly-x264enc


| Saving cache...

2) Second, I have placed gst-plugins-ugly-meta in local.conf file


       gst-plugins-ugly-meta \


and again added this line to local.conf file: PACKAGECONFIG_pn_gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly += "x264"


Please help. It is urgent
