ffmpeg (multimedia/ffmpeg) Updated: 1 year ago Add to my watchlist

FFmpeg is a complete solution to play, record, convert and stream audio and video.

FFmpeg is a complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. It includes libavcodec, the leading audio/video codec library. The project is made of several components: ffmpeg is a command line tool to convert one video file format to another. It also supports grabbing and encoding in real time from a TV card. ffserver is an HTTP (RTSP is being developed) multimedia streaming server for live broadcasts. Time shifting of live broadcast is also supported. ffplay is a simple media player based on SDL and on the ffmpeg libraries. ffprobe gathers information from multimedia streams and prints it in human- and machine-readable fashion. libavcodec is a library containing all the ffmpeg audio/video encoders and decoders. Most codecs were developed from scratch to ensure best performance and high code reusability. libavformat is a library containing parsers and generators for all common audio/video formats.

Port notes

Support for rav1e now disabled by default; enable via +rav1e This build of ffmpeg includes GPLed code and is therefore licensed under GPL v2 or later. The following modules are GPLed:
libvidstab libx264 libx265 libxvid postproc
To include all nonfree, GPLed and LGPL code use variant +nonfree. To remove nonfree and GPLed code leaving only LGPL code remove the +gpl2 variant.
