FFmpeg support not compiled in Audacity 12.1 and 12.2

I recently updated 12.1 to 12.2 and 11.4 to 12.1 in KDE 64 bit. I did not notice that Audacity was also updated in such a way that I am no longer able to import mp3 files until today. I looked in the Packman repos and it seems that Audacity is up to date according to Yast (1.13.6 beta in 12.1 and 2.0.0 in 12.2). How do I get my hands on an Audacity package with ffmpeg support compiled in?

Thanks in advance.

Can someone familiar with Audacity tell me why is ffmpeg support “temporarily” disabled?

[packages/audacity] - temporarily disabled ffmpeg support](http://www.mail-archive.com/pld-cvs-commit@lists.pld-linux.org/msg296509.html)

I see a bug report that goes back to July which really worries me because it goes back to July:


Perhaps, if you are a regular Audacity user, you can tell me how to keep posted on the latest updates on exactly what is happening?

Thanks in advance

OK, my mistake. I thought I was looking at the Audacity in the Packman repo, but what I had to do was temporarily block the OSS repo, so I could actually see the Audacity with FFmpeg support in the Packman repo. Therefore, it’s the Audacity in the OSS repo that is not compiled with FFmpeg support.:shame: Live and learn.

As with all multi-media cases, you should “switch to Packman”.

Thanks, Henk, it’s nice to have you point out those important road signs.
