How to build MediaInfo

Build under macOS and Linux

First, you must create a directory which will receive the MediaInfo directory, and ZenLib and MediaInfoLib if you decide to compile them yourself.

In this document, this directory will be referred as $BUILD_DIR.

Build MediaInfo CLI

When you have done all the prerequisite for your configuration, then build MediaInfo. We start with the CLI.

cd $BUILD_DIR
git clone https://github.com/MediaArea/MediaInfo.git
cd MediaInfo/Project/GNU/CLI
./autogen.sh
Then, under macOS:
./configure --enable-staticlibs
make
Under Linux:
./configure --enable-shared
make

Or for statically linked executable, if you also build ZenLib and MediaInfoLib:

./configure --enable-staticlibs
make

Launch the CLI

./mediainfo

Build MediaInfo GUI

If you have already build the CLI, no need to run git twice. In fact, if you re-run git with an existing MediaInfo directory, git will complain and exit.

To compile MediaInfo GUI under macOS and Linux:

cd $BUILD_DIR
git clone https://github.com/MediaArea/MediaInfo.git
cd MediaInfo/Project/GNU/CLI
./autogen.sh
Then, under macOS:
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/wxWidgets.framework/Versions/wxWidgets/3/0/bin
./configure --enable-staticlibs
make
Under Linux:
./configure --enable-shared
make

Or for statically linked executable, if you also build ZenLib and MediaInfoLib:

./configure --enable-staticlibs
make

Launch the GUI

./mediainfo-gui

Optional : build ZenLib and MediaInfoLib

ZenLib

To compile ZenLib under macOS and Linux:

cd $BUILD_DIR
git clone https://github.com/MediaArea/ZenLib.git
cd ZenLib/Project/GNU/Library
./autogen.sh
./configure --enable-static
make

MediaInfoLib

To compile MediaInfoLib under macOS and Linux:

cd $BUILD_DIR
git clone https://github.com/MediaArea/MediaInfoLib.git
cd MediaInfoLib/Project/GNU/Library
./autogen.sh
./configure --enable-static
make
