FFmpeg static build
Three scripts to make a static build of ffmpeg with all the latest codecs (webm + h264).
Just follow the instructions below. Once you have the build dependencies, just run ./build.py, wait and you should get the ffmpeg binary in target/bin
# Debian & Ubuntu $ apt-get install build-essential curl tar <FIXME???> # OS X # install XCode, it can be found at http://developer.apple.com/ # (apple login needed) # <FIXME???>
Build & "install"
$ ./build.sh # ... wait ... # binaries can be found in ./target/bin/
NOTE: If you're going to use the h264 presets, make sure to copy them along the binaries. For ease, you can put them in your home folder like this:
$ mkdir ~/.ffmpeg $ cp ./target/share/ffmpeg/*.ffpreset ~/.ffmpeg
On the top-level of the project, run:
$ . env.source
You can then enter the source folders and make the compilation yourself
$ cd build/ffmpeg-* $ ./configure --prefix=$TARGET_DIR #... # ...
I'm not sure it's a good idea to statically link those, but it probably means the executable won't work across distributions or even across releases.

- Add some tests to check that video output is correctly generated this would help upgrading the package without too much work
- OSX's xvidcore does not detect yasm correctly
- remove remaining libs
