I probably know enough terminal / command line to be dangerous… I previously installed ffmpeg with Homebrew (I believe). It puts the executable in /usr/local/bin/
Audacity doesn’t see this location. When I use terminal to list files, I don’t see the file ‘ffmpeg.55.64bit.dylib’. If I try pointing Auduacity to paths like /usr/local/bin/ or /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg.55.64bit.dylib, that doesn’t work.
So my question is pretty simple. Is there a way to point Audacity to the copy of ffmpeg that I already have installed?
Or is standard/best practice to just download ffmpeg again to give Audacity it’s own copy, separate from what I installed with Homebrew? Ideally, it would be nice to a have a single copy, though I suppose if Audacity needed older or different versions, having them separate could be good.
