1 External libraries

FFmpeg can be hooked up with a number of external libraries to add support for more formats. None of them are used by default, their use has to be explicitly requested by passing the appropriate flags to ./configure .

1.1 Alliance for Open Media (AOM)

FFmpeg can make use of the AOM library for AV1 decoding and encoding.

Go to http://aomedia.org/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libaom to configure to enable it.

1.2 AMD AMF/VCE

FFmpeg can use the AMD Advanced Media Framework library under Windows for accelerated H.264 and HEVC encoding on hardware with Video Coding Engine (VCE).

To enable support you must obtain the AMF framework header files from https://github.com/GPUOpen-LibrariesAndSDKs/AMF.git .

Create an AMF/ directory in the system include path. Copy the contents of AMF/amf/public/include/ into that directory. Then configure FFmpeg with --enable-amf .

1.3 AviSynth

FFmpeg can read AviSynth scripts as input. To enable support, pass --enable-avisynth to configure. The correct headers are included in compat/avisynth/, which allows the user to enable support without needing to search for these headers themselves.

For Windows, supported AviSynth variants are AviSynth 2.6 RC1 or higher for 32-bit builds and AviSynth+ r1718 or higher for 32-bit and 64-bit builds.

For Linux and OS X, the supported AviSynth variant is AvxSynth .

In 2016, AviSynth+ added support for building with GCC. However, due to the eccentricities of Windows’ calling conventions, 32-bit GCC builds of AviSynth+ are not compatible with typical 32-bit builds of FFmpeg.

By default, FFmpeg assumes compatibility with 32-bit MSVC builds of AviSynth+ since that is the most widely-used and entrenched build configuration. Users can override this and enable support for 32-bit GCC builds of AviSynth+ by passing -DAVSC_WIN32_GCC32 to --extra-cflags when configuring FFmpeg.

64-bit builds of FFmpeg are not affected, and can use either MSVC or GCC builds of AviSynth+ without any special flags.

AviSynth and AvxSynth are loaded dynamically. Distributors can build FFmpeg with --enable-avisynth , and the binaries will work regardless of the end user having AviSynth or AvxSynth installed - they’ll only need to be installed to use AviSynth scripts (obviously).

1.4 Chromaprint

FFmpeg can make use of the Chromaprint library for generating audio fingerprints. Pass --enable-chromaprint to configure to enable it. See https://acoustid.org/chromaprint .

1.5 codec2

FFmpeg can make use of the codec2 library for codec2 decoding and encoding. There is currently no native decoder, so libcodec2 must be used for decoding.

Go to http://freedv.org/ , download "Codec 2 source archive". Build and install using CMake. Debian users can install the libcodec2-dev package instead. Once libcodec2 is installed you can pass --enable-libcodec2 to configure to enable it.

The easiest way to use codec2 is with .c2 files, since they contain the mode information required for decoding. To encode such a file, use a .c2 file extension and give the libcodec2 encoder the -mode option: ffmpeg -i input.wav -mode 700C output.c2 . Playback is as simple as ffplay output.c2 . For a list of supported modes, run ffmpeg -h encoder=libcodec2 . Raw codec2 files are also supported. To make sense of them the mode in use needs to be specified as a format option: ffmpeg -f codec2raw -mode 1300 -i input.raw output.wav .

1.6 dav1d

FFmpeg can make use of the dav1d library for AV1 video decoding.

Go to https://code.videolan.org/videolan/dav1d and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libdav1d to configure to enable it.

1.7 davs2

FFmpeg can make use of the davs2 library for AVS2-P2/IEEE1857.4 video decoding.

Go to https://github.com/pkuvcl/davs2 and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libdavs2 to configure to enable it.

libdavs2 is under the GNU Public License Version 2 or later (见 http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html for details), you must upgrade FFmpeg’s license to GPL in order to use it.

1.8 Game Music Emu

FFmpeg can make use of the Game Music Emu library to read audio from supported video game music file formats. Pass --enable-libgme to configure to enable it. See https://bitbucket.org/mpyne/game-music-emu/overview .

1.9 Intel QuickSync Video

FFmpeg can use Intel QuickSync Video (QSV) for accelerated decoding and encoding of multiple codecs. To use QSV, FFmpeg must be linked against the libmfx dispatcher, which loads the actual decoding libraries.

The dispatcher is open source and can be downloaded from https://github.com/lu-zero/mfx_dispatch.git . FFmpeg needs to be configured with the --enable-libmfx option and pkg-config needs to be able to locate the dispatcher’s .pc files.

1.10 Kvazaar

FFmpeg can make use of the Kvazaar library for HEVC encoding.

Go to https://github.com/ultravideo/kvazaar and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libkvazaar to configure to enable it.

1.11 LAME

FFmpeg can make use of the LAME library for MP3 encoding.

Go to http://lame.sourceforge.net/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libmp3lame to configure to enable it.

1.12 libilbc

iLBC is a narrowband speech codec that has been made freely available by Google as part of the WebRTC project. libilbc is a packaging friendly copy of the iLBC codec. FFmpeg can make use of the libilbc library for iLBC decoding and encoding.

Go to https://github.com/TimothyGu/libilbc and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libilbc to configure to enable it.

1.13 libvpx

FFmpeg can make use of the libvpx library for VP8/VP9 decoding and encoding.

Go to http://www.webmproject.org/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libvpx to configure to enable it.

1.14 ModPlug

FFmpeg can make use of this library, originating in Modplug-XMMS, to read from MOD-like music files. 见 https://github.com/Konstanty/libmodplug . Pass --enable-libmodplug to configure to enable it.

1.15 OpenCORE, VisualOn, and Fraunhofer libraries

Spun off Google Android sources, OpenCore, VisualOn and Fraunhofer libraries provide encoders for a number of audio codecs.

OpenCORE and VisualOn libraries are under the Apache License 2.0 (见 http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0 for details), which is incompatible to the LGPL version 2.1 and GPL version 2. You have to upgrade FFmpeg’s license to LGPL version 3 (or if you have enabled GPL components, GPL version 3) by passing --enable-version3 to configure in order to use it.

The license of the Fraunhofer AAC library is incompatible with the GPL. Therefore, for GPL builds, you have to pass --enable-nonfree to configure in order to use it. To the best of our knowledge, it is compatible with the LGPL.

1.15.1 OpenCORE AMR

FFmpeg can make use of the OpenCORE libraries for AMR-NB decoding/encoding and AMR-WB decoding.

Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencore-amr/ and follow the instructions for installing the libraries. Then pass --enable-libopencore-amrnb and/or --enable-libopencore-amrwb to configure to enable them.

1.15.2 VisualOn AMR-WB encoder library

FFmpeg can make use of the VisualOn AMR-WBenc library for AMR-WB encoding.

Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencore-amr/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libvo-amrwbenc to configure to enable it.

1.15.3 Fraunhofer AAC library

FFmpeg can make use of the Fraunhofer AAC library for AAC decoding & encoding.

Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencore-amr/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libfdk-aac to configure to enable it.

1.16 OpenH264

FFmpeg can make use of the OpenH264 library for H.264 decoding and encoding.

Go to http://www.openh264.org/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libopenh264 to configure to enable it.

For decoding, this library is much more limited than the built-in decoder in libavcodec; currently, this library lacks support for decoding B-frames and some other main/high profile features. (It currently only supports constrained baseline profile and CABAC.) Using it is mostly useful for testing and for taking advantage of Cisco’s patent portfolio license ( http://www.openh264.org/BINARY_LICENSE.txt ).

1.17 OpenJPEG

FFmpeg can use the OpenJPEG libraries for decoding/encoding J2K videos. Go to http://www.openjpeg.org/ to get the libraries and follow the installation instructions. To enable using OpenJPEG in FFmpeg, pass --enable-libopenjpeg to ‘ ./configure ’.

1.18 TwoLAME

FFmpeg can make use of the TwoLAME library for MP2 encoding.

Go to http://www.twolame.org/ and follow the instructions for installing the library. Then pass --enable-libtwolame to configure to enable it.

1.19 VapourSynth

FFmpeg can read VapourSynth scripts as input. To enable support, pass --enable-vapoursynth to configure. Vapoursynth is detected via pkg-config . Versions 42 or greater supported. 见 http://www.vapoursynth.com/ .

Due to security concerns, Vapoursynth scripts will not be autodetected so the input format has to be forced. For ff* CLI tools, add -f vapoursynth before the input -i yourscript.vpy .

1.20 WavPack
