View Full Version : [ubuntu] FFMPEG broken in Hardy Heron?

May 22nd, 2008, 08:02 PM
Just attempting to install ffmpeg. When I go to install the dependencies libfaad2-dev is not available in the repositories, and when I change it to libfaad-dev and then attempt to transcode a video file with AAC audio I get the following error message

[aac @ 0xb7eac2a8]FAAD library: cannot resolve faacDecGetErrorMessage in libfaad.so.0!

My ffmpeg version is below

Any help greatly appreciated - I've been banging my head against a brick wall for hours on this now!

thats definitely an old version of ffmpeg the svn versions now refer to xvid etc as libxvid libx264, if you have no wish to compile your own use the more recent version from the medibuntu repos.

However, if you with to compile your own see this thread:
HOWTO: Compile the latest ffmpeg and x264 from source (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095)

What is the exact ffmpeg command you used? What is the full output ffmpeg gave you after your command? Which version of ffmpeg did you use (svn, Ubuntu repo, medibuntu)?
