Make errors when installing ffmpeg-php-0.6.0

When installing ffmpeg-php-0.6.0 getting the the following errors

Then,  looking up for hours, it seems that time.h for some apparent reason has been used in ffmpeg 1.2.1 (this is what I tested). This caused conflict with the OS’s own file of the same name.

I have found a git repo maintained bytony2001 who has made changes to the original project and using his repo has helped me install it successfully on CentOS-6.2, CentOS-6.3 and CentOS-6.4

Follow the steps below to install it

git clone https://github.com/tony2001/ffmpeg-php.git
cd ffmpeg-php
phpize
./configure
make && make install
