ffmpeg / libav
Hi,
is ffmpeg obligatory on server side or does wptserver work with fork avconv/libav-tools, too?
Regards, Nils

RE: ffmpeg / libav
I am pretty sure it needs ffmpeg proper. I know if you are doing mobile testing it absolutely needs ffmpeg because it relies on filters that the fork doesn't contain. For server-side video rendering it needs ffmpeg with x264 support and I don't know if the fork uses the same command-line.

Fwiw, I have the 64-bit static build of ffmpeg for linux here if you want to use it: http://www.webpagetest.org/software/ffmpeg

I'm running ubuntu which uses the avconv fork and ununstalled it and manually installed the static ffmpeg build (I think there was also a PPA with it but I had issues getting it to install).

RE: ffmpeg / libav
thanks for informations

With ubuntu I use PPA:
Code:
add-apt-repository ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg
apt-get update
apt-get install ffmpeg
That works.

Older debian releases had ffmpeg in their repositories. But with actual debian jessie I can't get ubuntu PPA installation to work Sad
Is it just the ffmpeg binary you offered which must be available in /usr/bin/ ?

It doesn't have to be the one I offered, any mainline build will work (at least with newer WPT releases). You can grab Jon's versions from here: http://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/
