Hello encoders =)
Right now I'm trying to set my encoding software on ubuntu (11.04) and am having problems with x264.
I got x264 last version from git and its configure gave me this:
After compiling and installing I get this from "x264 --version":
filters: resize crop select_every
bit depth: 8
chroma format: all
You can run 'make' or 'make fprofiled' now.
The problem is that neither ffmpeg or mplayer seem to find this library installed. Both configure scripts say no even when trying --enable-libx264 (ffmpeg simply say I don't have x264 >= 118).
x264 0.120.2164 da19765
built on Feb 21 2012, gcc: 4.5.2
configuration: --bit-depth=8 --chroma-format=all
x264 license: GPL version 2 or later
libswscale/libavformat license: LGPL version 2.1 or later
Other things I found out are that ffmpeg detects everything BUT the encoding features for h264 and my videos with this codec do play fine (VLC Media Player apparently is even using the x264 library itself). Also when I run the version.sh script after installing it gives me this:
#define X264_REV 2164
#define X264_REV_DIFF 0
#define X264_VERSION " r2164 da19765"
#define X264_POINTVER "0.120.2164 da19765"
Some extra that can be useful:
Thank you for your attention...
