ffmpeg install error from SlackBuilds


Hi,
I am trying to install ffmpeg from SlackBuilds but it ends up with the following error message: FAAD Test failed.

I have already tried the latest version but it still gets the same error.
Any hints?

Thanks,
eraosso

Hello,

Did you install the 'faad2' package also? It's needed by ffmpeg, you can get it from SlackBuilds.org.

Kind regards,

Eric

If you do not want FAAD support, either run the SlackBuild like this:
Code:
FAAD=no ./ffmpeg.SlackBuild
or edit it accordingly.

If you want FAAD support, install FAAD2 first -- it's available on slackbuilds.org too.

Thanks Didier and Eric!
The FAAD issue is solved but now I end up with another error:
ERROR: libx264 not found
How can I solve this one?

Thanks again!

http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien...builds/ffmpeg/ should be a good start point. 'ffmpeg.SlackBuild' have one specific flag for libx264 (--enable-libx264).

If you don't need x264, disable it (--disable-libx264). When there, look around for other dependencies.

Hi again! Problem solved! I did find the x264 library and successfully installed everything!

Learning and learning....
