Introduction

This project is forked from https://github.com/lajos/iFrameExtractor. I update the code for the latest ffmpeg and iOS version. The source code is tested on Mac OS 10.7.4(Lion) for ffmpeg 0.11.1 and iOS 5.1 with Xcode 4.3.2.

Build steps

  • Download the code using

git clone git://github.com/PinkyJie/iFrameExtractor.git

  • Download the latest ffmpeg (0.11.1 tested) using

git clone git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git

  • Put the ffmpeg source code into the folder ffmpeg

  • Copy the perl script gas-preprocessor.pl into /usr/local/bin folder

  • Change directory to your ffmpeg folder, select your target platform and follow the scripts below
