    Re: HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264

    I just did a test compile on 10.04 and it worked. Note that first I deleted the old ~/ffmpeg directory because it was using SVN and FFmpeg has moved to Git.

    If you --enable-shared on FFmpeg, then you should do the same for the external libraries. Add it to x264 and libvpx. For LAME just remove --disable-shared.

    Then after you install everything you should run "sudo ldconfig". If you don't run that command you'll receive something like the following:
    Code:
    $ ffmpeg
    ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libavdevice.so.52: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    thanks for the feedback, again. I am gonna test with -enable-shared for x264 now

    // Whoa, my bad. Forget it //


    Also, as a sidenote... is there a quick way to compile x264 with L-SMASH mp4 output?

    As always, thanks!

    Regards,

    Ame




    Edit: I just recalled that the "checkinstall" step for creating a deb. package doesn't work... it creates a dummy package (16kb in size).

    well no luck for me after recompiling with libx264 --enable-shared

    output in terminal is:

    I have just been looking at this courtesy of qyot's recent post and I settled on patching, and quite a large patch it is. Change to the directory containing your x264 source and run the following:

    Code:
    $ wget http://vfrmaniac.fushizen.eu/OtherStuff/L-SMASH/x264_lsmash.diff
    $ patch -p1 < x264_lsmash.diff 
    $ ./configure --enable-nonfree
    and then run the usual make and checkinstall commands from Fakeoutdoorsman's guide. Nice having the audio track encoded as well with the patched x264

    The x264 checkinstall pkgversion is mental. I want a simpler, cleaner way of getting the same output. We get signal:
    Code:
    $ ./version.sh
    #define X264_VERSION " r1900 60ef1f8"
    #define X264_POINTVER "0.114.1900 60ef1f8"
    I want 0.114.1900+git60ef1f8. Unfortunately, my text wrangling skills are lacking. I can get this with:
    Code:
    $ ./version.sh | awk '/POINT/{print $3,$4}' | sed 's/"//g;s/ /+git/'
    0.114.1900+git60ef1f8
    It's less verbose, but I know it can be more efficient. Any suggestions?

    As a sidenote, when doing compiles for Windows, the audio support allows using Quicktime to act as the AAC encoder*, so long as the SDK is given to x264 at ./configure. The downside to that is needing to sign up for a free ADC account and download the SDK yourself, though. For cross-compiles it's also a bit trickier because some case-sensitivity comes into play with the filenames, but under a native Windows environment that isn't a problem.

    *Although it only works if one has Quicktime installed. It doesn't even have to be Quicktime Pro; the standard version that ships with iTunes is enough. And IMO iTunes is ubiquitous enough now that that shouldn't be a concern.

    Personally I think the advantage of being able to use the Quicktime encoder far outweighs the extra work needed to get the necessary libs/includes. That advantage being, Quicktime's has historically been one of the best AAC encoders, whether that's first place, tied for first with Nero, or a very close second behind Nero. You would think that this functionality would also be possible on OSX builds, but apparently not (although I've not tried compiling x264 on OSX for almost a year, well before the L-SMASH and audio support stuff was being tossed around publicly; it very well could have been added by now).

    Code:
    $ ./version.sh | awk '/POINTVER/ { print $3,$4 }' | sed 's/"//g' | sed 's/ /+git/'
    0.114.1900+git60ef1f8
    Hmmmm..... this is not much of an improvement I guess:

    Code:
    $ ./version.sh | grep 'POINT' | cut -d '"' -f 2 | sed 's/ /+git/'
    0.114.189+git60ef1f8
    Big advantage for me is that I don't understand awk

    Hello, great guide for ffmpeg, congratulations.

    I have compiled and installed ffmpeg and x264 in my hp compaq 6720 s laptop dual boot vista/lucid lynx as it is recommended in this guide.

    I try to pass this audio file from bbc (real player coded) http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/le...ter_audio1.ram to wav. I download the file and then try the command : ffmpeg -i winchester_audio1.ram winchester_audio1.wav
    as I was adviced by JC Cheloven in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1678278 but I obtain the following error:

    ffmpeg -i winchester_audio1.ram winchester_audio1.wav

    winchester_audio1.ram: Invalid data found when processing input

    What can be the problem?, Have I missed some codec?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi claracc
    ffmpeg can't convert the link as it is.
    Right-click on that link http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/le...ter_audio1.ram

    And 'Save link as...'.
    You'll get a file named winchester_audio1.ram in your home folder.

    Open that file with gedit text editor or similar.
    You'll see that it says:-
    rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/beyondthepostcard/winchester1.ra?BBC-UID=144d2571dee4faed59a5a50dd10e5c0aa1f1b2cb709051 9424bff4f638d05eda&SSO2-UID=

    You only need the part up till the question mark (?).
    Which is
    rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/beyondthepostcard/winchester1.ra

    Now you can use that with ffmpeg.
    Like this:-
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/beyondthepostcard/winchester1.ra winchester_audio1.wav
