Testing FFmpeg system-istalled


HOW TO TEST YOUR FFMPEG

FFmpeg handles a lots of formats but only if you install it correctly let’s go to test it

Type in a terminal :

ffmpeg -formats 2>&1 | grep aac

if you get

 D  aac             ADTS AAC D A    mpeg4aac

E=Encoder and so…

Your ffmpeg is not able to use restricted formats like ac3 wma etc etc ! and you’ll get problems !

 

if you get

 D  aac             ADTS AAC DEA    aac D A    mpeg4aac

your FFmpeg is compiled with aac supports and if you wanna encode on ac3 formats you HAVE TO USE like codec name aac!

EXAMPLE: ffmpeg -i INPUT -acodec aac OUTPUT
fi you get

 D  aac             ADTS AAC DEA    libfaac D A    mpeg4aac

Your FFmpeg is compiled with aac supports but YOU HAVE TO USE LIBFAAC like codec name!

EXAMPLE: ffmpeg -i INPUT -acodec libfaac OUTPUT

this works for many codecs example xvid h264 etc etc

etc etc
