JLS,
Do you still have the development files for this extension?  It would be good to have a ffmpeg-devs extension to build against.

When building simply keep the headers, pkgconfig files and .a and .la files and stuff like that.  Building VLC is what I had in mind and it requires libavcodec libraraies and all.  Since this appears to be a static build, very small and fitting for TC for a standalone ffmpeg, perhaps a dynamic built ffmpeg extension could exist to be used to build media players against.

Re: ffmpeg: how to convert mp4 to mp3?
« Reply #5 on: June 22, 2009, 11:53:52 PM »
I'm trying to convert some mp4 videos to mp3 (to extract the sound)

I have ffmpeg and lame (tcz) extensions.

Tried, the following:

ffmpeg -i myfile.mp4 -vn -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128000 output.mp3
[apparently that is how someone does it on Puppy Linux; I've still to try on that, but want to use TC!]

and received the following error message:

Code: [Select]
FFmpeg version SVN-r18347, Copyright (c) 2000-2009 Fabrice Bellard, et al.

Unknown encoder 'libmp3lame'

I do have libmp3lame.so in /usr/local/lib

Any ideas why it won't work? Is ffmpeg not compiled to support libmp3lame [I know nothing about ffmpeg compilation]?

maybe:

ffmpeg -i yourvideofile.mp4 -ab 128k yoursoundfile.mp3 (note: 128k is the bit rate, feel free to change it)

alternatively (with mplayer nogui):

mplayer -vo null -dumpaudio -dumpfile /youraudio.mp3 /yourvideo.mp4

The line you tried with ffmpeg would have re-encoded the sound, losing quality. Mplayer used as above only separates the existing stream.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I have been using ffmpeg too and ran into the same problem with mp3.  Most of the time I am able to use the -acodec copy converting the flv files.   What you might use is the map option to take the audio to a wav file and then convert it with lame.  This is a good webpage that shows ways to do it:
