Build for Mac OS

Build ffmpeg for Max OS

cd osx && ./

Build ijkplayer for Max OS

cd desktop
mkdir cmake-build-debug && cd cmake-build-debug
cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Debug"
make IjkPlayer
make tuidemo

Or you can open ijkplayer as a CMakeLists.txt project using Clion.

tuidemo is a terminal UI demo for ijkplayer in progress, it can't display video yet.

libIjkPlayer.dylib is the output dynamic library.
