Disclaimer

Use this script at your own risk. I maintain this script in my spare time. Please do not file bug reports for systems other than Debian 9 and macOS 10.13 because I don't have the resources and the time to maintain other systems.

  • x264: H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC)
  • x265: H.265 Video Codec
  • fdk_aac: Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec
  • xvidcore: MPEG-4 video coding standard
  • webm: WebM is a video file format
  • mp3: MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III
  • ogg: Free, open container format
  • vorbis: Lossy audio compression format
  • theora: Free lossy video compression format

Continuos Integration

ffmpeg-build-script is rockstable. Every commit runs against Linux and OSX with https://travis-ci.org just to make sure everything works as expected.

Requirements OSX

  • XCode 5.x or greater

Requirements Linux

  • Debian >= Wheezy, Ubuntu => Trusty, other Distros might work too
  • build-essentials installed:
# Debian and Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install build-essential curl g++

# Fedora
sudo dnf install @development-tools

Installation

Quick install and run

Open your command line and run (needs curl to be installed):

bash <(curl -s "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/markus-perl/ffmpeg-build-script/master/web-install.sh?v1")

This command downloads the build script and automatically starts the build process.

Common installation

git clone https://github.com/markus-perl/ffmpeg-build-script.git
cd ffmpeg-build-script
./build-ffmpeg --help

Usage

./build-ffmpeg --help       Display usage information
./build-ffmpeg --build      Starts the build process
./build-ffmpeg --cleanup    Remove all working dirs
