I have compiled audacity 2.1 with WxGTK 2.8.12 on a laptop with jessie
and now i need help to install ffmpeg
Can someone please post a working routine?
In a previous posting i could only find out that audacity won´t compile against higher than ffmpeg 0.8.
As I am not so experienced with linux i could need some help doing that
From the release notes Missing features - Audacity Support
(Linux) Audacity may not always compile against supported versions of libav or FFmpeg. Audacity 2.0.6 and later supports FFmpeg 1.2 to 2.3.x (or libav 0.8 to 0.10.x).
Dynamic loading (as in default Audacity ./configure) requires building against the FFmpeg project - it will not build against the libav* headers from the libav project.
Configure Audacity with --disable-dynamic-loading. If dynamic loading is required, build against FFmpeg instead of libav, or you can build against libav if you remove the “#define IS_FFMPEG_PROJECT 1” line in src/FFmpeg.h.
If your system libav is higher than what Audacity supports then you’ll need to build and install your own local copy of a suitable FFmpeg or libav version first, before you compile Audacity.
