"Official" builds?

Post by athanyel » Mon Jun 06, 2011 2:01 am

I was thinking it might be nice to have the official releases available for Windows. Would it be possible to have the offical releases (0.6.3 and 0.7rc1) available via your site?

Thanks!

I will see what I can do, make sure to check the build directories because they wouldn't be posted as a new build.

Thank you - great to see the Windows binary of the official 0.8 release!

Is there any way to download libfaac.dll separately and use it with your shared build, to enable support of the libfaac codec?

Sadly I don't believe so, but if someone knows a way they are free to share.

FFmpeg needs to be compiled with --enable-libfaac meaning that it would also need to be compiled with --enable-nonfree and I'm unable to redistribute the resulting build due to that.

Hi !

Is it possible to create latest official build (0.8.6) ?

WBR, Alex.

Okay, but is it possible to just compile release branch like nightly builds ? I mean, it will be great to have compiled git's commit b1f9ff45d4d4a2eb705fec33028b2b886d4b6ffb, which represent version 0.10.3, and have file ffmpeg-0.10.3-win32..., like for ffmpeg-0.8-win32.

Without it, there is no stable version of ffmpeg for windows at all.

Totally agree - having a binary of the current (stable) latest release - 0.11.1 at the moment - would be more useful than (unstable) nightly GIT snapshots.

Please keep in mind that the releases are always more stable than the latest git.

I will try and get around to it, but it is down my list a bit.

Meanwhile, FFmpeg 1.0 has been released! The last version of a release build you provided was 0.8 - would you consider to provide 1.0 as well?

ok help me out to understand here...why exactly would you prefer 1.0 release when it's basically an older, possibly more buggy, snapshot? I mean there may be well be a reason...
Thanks!
