ffmpeg-static

ffmpeg static binaries for Mac OSX and Linux and Windows.

Supports macOS (64-bit), Linux (32 and 64-bit) and Windows (32 and 64-bit). The current ffmpeg version is 4.1.

Note: The version of ffmpeg-static follows SemVer. When releasing new versions, we do not consider breaking changes in ffmpeg itself, but only the JS interface (see below). To stop ffmpeg-static from breaking your code by getting updated, lock the version down or use a lockfile.
