Compiling FFMPEG

I included pre-compiled binaries with this project but just in case you need to compile your own, here are the instructions:

  1. Download NDK 5. It's now archived. As of 10/2013, this link works:
  1. Download a version of FFmpeg that works with this project. We're using bambuser's. Download client version 1.3.7 to 1.3.10.
  2. Extract the archive.
  3. Copy and the ffmpeg-*.tar.gz file into the JNI/ffmpeg-android folder.
  4. Run
  5. Change to your liking. Hint: run configure --help from ffmpeg to find options to enable or disable.
  • Make sure to enable the file protocol. You need that to open files on the phone.
  • Enabling the non-free codecs gives more supported formats but it may not be compatible for the license of your project.
  1. Rerun
  2. Run
