ffmpeg does not know libmp3lame


Recently I had to reinstall Tumbleweed completely because previous installation got completely insane. During this process I have installed ffmpeg and libmp3lame from packman. When now I start ffmpeg I see that it has --enable-libmp3lame in the configuration but no libmp3lame in the output of ffmpeg -codecs. If I try ffmpeg -i… -c:a libmp3lame … it tells me Unknown encoder ‘libmp3lame’. strace also shows that ffmpeg does not even try to open any libmp3lame library.

I think to remember that in the previous installation of Tumbleweed everything was working well. Any idea what else I have to install in order to get it working?

Best regards,

Have you added pack man? Proprietary formats are dealt with there

And please not only add Packman, but switch to it.
(sounds obvious, but recently there where a few people thinking that adding the repo was the same as using it, one even called it “I have installed Packman”).
