FFMPEG

in Apple

Compiling current clone of FFMPEG on OS X 10.7 Lion

 

Upgrading to OS X 10.7 (Lion) has really caused some issues for me. A big issue for me was not being able to easily grab the current clone of ffmpeg from the git repository. I was able to compile after doing the following.

1. Get your OS X 10.7 system current (as of now 10.7.1 is the latest and greatest)

2. Get Xcode from the App Store and there will be a software update on that (unless Apple has recently changed that.)

3. Reinstall fink (recommended after the 10.6-10.7 upgrade) and get it fully up-to-speed. http://www.finkproject.org

4. Install pkgconfig via fink using

# fink install pkgconfig

as root or do it with sudo.

5. Get (git!) the current clone of ffmpeg. (info here —> http://ffmpeg.org/download.html )

6. When you do the ffmpeg source configure, include theĀ  –disable-yasm flag

#./configure –disable-yasm

Then

# make

Then

# make install

7. You will have ffmpeg on OS X Lion.

Hope this helps.
