Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

RPi_Mike - Thanks for taking the time to analyse my problem and reply to my post. It is appreciated. My Pi3 started life as Jessie Lite with a USB hard drive holding the OS in one partition and another partition being used for storing ip camera recordings. I upgraded this to Stretch rather than loa...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

Big Thanks, first of all to Rpi_Mike for the effort he's made. Anyhow, I get to step 10, (libass subtitle renderer) and on the './configure --enable-shared' step I am getting... configure: error: Package requirements (fribidi >= 0.19.0) were not met: No package 'fribidi' found {I have} Debian versi...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

Sorry I didn’t mean to hijack your thread ... Could you tell me whether your version of ffmpeg yielded the ffplay component of ffmpeg ... would you be able to test play a hd video with ffplay ... I gathered from your tutorial that your video output from mpv only comes in two flavours: full screen a...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

Great post, thank you! But for me one thing is not clear: do I have to uninstall all existing versions of mpv, ffmpeg, etc before compiling "my own", or I can install on top of them? Or this new libs/binaries will coexist peacefully with old ones? I appreciate your question. There are several thing...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

In my opinion probably seconded by millions of users( unless you are an extreme minimalist) on other platforms the enjoyment and utility of mpv is greatly enhanced by using it as the engine for the smplayer gui rather than standalone. This is even more true on the Pi .Since you configured your ffmp...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

The normal font size is what you get when you DO NOT FIDDLE WITH THE SIZE OPTION, and leave it alone (the default even says "Normal" size). To aberrant from that you have to put size = tags around the text, you want to resize, or use the re-size pulldown menu, so its obvious you are doing something...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

I have/will edite(d) all posts with size =140 (or 125) settings, to turn them back to normal, please don't do this! wasnt it a hint enough that I edited your post, you really couldn't resist undoing my changes? I feel I need to defend myself on this one, because it could create the FALSE perception...

RPi_Mike please can you edit your posts and put text back to standard size for this forum :roll: :roll: You can always fix it the other way with [CTRL] & [-] to reduce RPi_Mike's antisocial font size to something more readable. I can't believe I'm getting sucked into a debate about font size, but a...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

I won't recommend it unless I'm 100% convinced that the experimental kernel and bootcode will solve a problem. For me, the bleeding-edge firmware code solved a very real problem – it proved to be a critical element in getting the FFmpeg / mpv combination to provide maximum performance. Nonetheless,...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

Nice tutorial, but why do you think you have to use a big font everywhere? WARNING: Do not advice people to run sudo rpi-update This will install experimental kernel and firmware and might break your system! Another poster simply asked for my thoughts on your VLC tutorial and I provided my technica...

Re: TUTORIAL: Play or Encode High-Quality Video and Audio – with FFmpeg and mpv

Wow, this is beautifully done! Thanks for the tutorial. I'll hopefully get a chance to try this out next weekend. Can this build coexist with the accelerated vlc build outlined here? https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=195221 Thanks – I appreciate the kind words. I'm almost hesi...

GIANT UPDATE: Build FFmpeg and mpv – Automatically in 54 Minutes!

WITH MY AUTOMATED SCRIPT and a Raspberry Pi 3 you can play or encode almost any video or audio – from the last century's most obscure formats to the very latest in high definition. In fact, my script creates a system so muscular, it will play 1080p live-streamed video without the slightest hiccup. ...
