Hi Everybody,

I cannot find the latest (and working) ffmpeg binary for FreeBDS. I could find a lot of links for redHat, fedora and windows, but not for freeBSD.

Please, advise

Thanks

Hi noci,

Thanks for help, but I am still having problems. This page moved and they do not support official release anymore. There is a link

http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg-checkout-snapshot.tar.bz2

Is it the correct one working on a FreeBSD?

I have to install also  Mplayer + Mencoder There is a link to (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html ). Still I cannot figure out which binary package would work under FreeBSD.

Please, help

I didn't point to a binary package, it's a source package.
through the ("configure"/)"make"/"make install"

ffmpeg has  allways been a development project, it's a fast moving target.
Last summer google supported the project.

ffmpeg provides a library for encoding/decoding various formats, it's only a library
as such you'll also need some front end tool, that can be xine/mplayer/ whatever else
