No libavformat.55.dylib...


I’m new to Audacity. And as I need to export in HDAAC (48kHz) I have to install ffmpeg library. I did it through Homebrew :

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

and then :

brew install ffmpeg --with-fdk-aac --with-ffplay --with-freetype --with-libass --with-libquvi --with-libvorbis --with-libvpx --with-opus --with-x265

But Audacity is still looking for libavformat.55.dylib

What’s the problem?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Sorry, but we do not support Homebrew. Please ask them for help, or remove the Homebrew Audacity package (if you installed it) and install Audacity supplied by us

Audacity supplied by us is hardcoded to look for libavformat.55.dylib if you export using the “M4A (AAC) Files (FFmpeg)” choice. Here are the instructions to add FFmpeg support to Audacity supplied by us:

Alternatively you can choose (external program) when you export which gives you a command-line exporter. You can then point that command to any “ffmpeg” binary. Please see Exporting to an External Program.
