homebrew-ffmpeg

This is a 3rd party tap for Homebrew. It provides a formula for ffmpeg which includes options for enabling additional features and libraries.

Contents:

Installation and usage

In order to use this tap, you need to install Homebrew or Linuxbrew.

Then, to run a default installation, run:

brew tap homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg
brew install homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg

Note: If you already have ffmpeg installed from Homebrew core, you will receive an error. You need to first run brew uninstall ffmpeg before you can use this tap.

Installing with options

To see the list of supported options for this formula, run:

brew options homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg

Then, you can run:

brew install homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg --with-<option1> --with-<option2> ...

Installing latest Git version (HEAD)

FFmpeg recommends installing the latest Git master version over a release. This formula builds the latest release by default, but you can install the latest Git version by adding the --HEAD option:

brew install homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg --HEAD

Updating

To update Homebrew and upgrade the formula to the most recent stable release:

brew update && brew upgrade homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg

Or, if you are using the HEAD version and want to update to the latest commit:

brew update && brew upgrade homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg --fetch-HEAD
