I have a mac running 0sx 10.7.5, I’m using audacity 2.0.3 I want to convert mp3 to wma but it can’t seem to find ffmpeg and the file libavcodec.52.dylib, no matter where I put it.
I have followed the instructions precisely, downloaded the zip file version (several times, from the wiki page, and from the download link in the program from preferences/libraries/locate ffmpeg), placed it on the desktop, and tried putting it inside the audacity application folder with no luck. I have been through the forum looking at the “can’t find ffmpeg” and followed the advice there, again with no luck.
This is what happens. Start Audacity, go to preferences/libraries.
(A) window says “FFmpeg Library Version: FFmpeg Library not found”
(B) I click on “Locate”, window tells me “Audacity needs the file ‘libavcodec.52.dylib’ to import and export audio via FFmpeg … Location of ‘libavcodec.52.dylib’:”
(C) it then displays the location in the white bit – “/Applications/Audacity/libavcodec.52dylib”
This is the location where I put the file(s). The file name got into the window from me finding it with the “browse” feature
(D) I then click “OK”, and we return to the previous window at (A) above, still saying not found.
(E) regardless, I click on OK and return, restart the program, restart the computer, but still says no library.
Help!, What Am I Doing Wrong?
ps the preferences/libraries window shows the mp3 library version: LAME 3.98.2, and if I go to its location it is also in the applications folder, where I only just put it, so it seems to have found that ok.
I have also unlocked and changed permissions on the folder to read/write for everyone
