Configuration - FFmpeg Install

FFmpeg Setup

Agent has been updated to use FFmpeg v6 (as of June 2023).

If you're reading this message then chances are you've upgraded Agent and are having problems updating it (as it normally installs FFmpeg automatically). To get things working again:

  • OSX: Open a terminal and run :
    sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/
    brew install ffmpeg
    sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/

FFmpeg Troubleshooting

Run Agent from the terminal to see where it is looking for FFmpeg.

If you have built or installed FFmpeg in a location that it isn't checking you can set an override in the Media/XML/config.xml file in the FFMPEG_DIR element for example: <FFMPEG_DIR>/home/ffmpeg_v5</FFMPEG_DIR>
