Audacity 2.0.4 will not load correctly. I get module error with each DLL of the FFmpeg 0.6.2 file. No probs with 2.0.3 at all. Using Win 7 x64 and both versions of Audacity are the installer ones.
Screenshots of error dialogues and log attached.
The modules loading dialogue is new to 2.0.4 and is not meant for FFmpeg and LAME.
As I’ve already explained on feedback@, you are supposed to install FFmpeg properly using these instructions . Those instructions do not tell you to put the FFmpeg contents in the Modules folder, which is why you are seeing those errors. The same goes for lame ( http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#lame ) .
From where you are now, File > Exit Audacity. Open the Modules folder, select the following five files:
right-click > Cut, navigate up into the Audacity folder (where README.txt is) then paste those files. Now restart Audacity and LAME and FFmpeg should be detected.
If they are not detected this will be because you have the path to them pointing somewhere else.
To fix it, Edit > Preferences, choose “Libraries” on the left, then under “MP3 Export Library”, click Locate… then Browse… and then select and open the lame_enc.dll you pasted into the Audacity program folder.
Follow the same procedure to locate, browse and open the “avformat-52.dll” file that you pasted (that is the only FFmpeg file you need to locate).
Many thanks for your help. Sorry for my misunderstanding as getting and error message in ome version and not another threw me off. You help is very much appreciated.
