Thread: ffmpeg and libfaac

  1. #1

    Default ffmpeg and libfaac

    I've recently updated a system I do a lot of video work on to 11.3 I am converting video's to a variety of formats for devices that use aac audio

    When I try to encode a video with ffmpeg using " -acodec libfaac " I now get the message: Unknown encoder 'libfaac'

    I see that ffmpeg does not return the --enable-libfaac when the ffmpeg command is given.

    It looks like the build of ffmpeg I am using (0.6.0.25296-1.1-x86_64)
    from the Videolan repository Index of /pub/vlc/SuSE/11.3/ wasn't compiled with support for libfaac

    Is there a package available for 11.3 that supports libfaac?

    I've tried using the ffmpeg package for 11.2 but I still get the same error

    Try using the packman versions they are kept up-to-date and should give you full functionality.

    The same issue happened with packman packages. This was not a problem with 11.2, so I have tried installing the same 11.2 package from the 11.2 videolan repository. It does not solve the problem

    On another machine I have the packman 11.3 packages installed. I have ffmpeg 0.625512snv-2.pm3.1 from packman on another linux system and I have the same error.

    Please make sure you do NOT have the Videolan repo enabled
    Then use the package switcher to make sure all packages are from Packman

    I am trying to this on a non-critical system as a test. I am using packman from packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/11.3 and am getting Wrong Digest errors stating
    The expected checksum of file xxxxx is xxxx but the current checksum is yyyy

    This means that the file has been changed by accident or by an attacker since the repository created signed it.

    I get this error for almost every package.

    I believe there are other packman repository mirrors - should I try one?

    Even when I configure a different mirror packman.jacobs-university/de/suse/211.3 I get the same error messages when I try to switch packages to packman. Could I have corrupted the authentication infomation on my own system?

    I've tried a number of mirrors, packman unixheads in US geht.schon in germany same errors. Packman will sucessfully install one or two packages, and then return a Wrong Digest error.

    I realize I can't complain its opensource, but I am using this professionally have for the past year, but now its not working well. I'm looking like an idiot. What can I do to help solve this?
