@chapter external libraries
12

    
13
FFmpeg can be hooked up with a number of external libraries to add support
14
for more formats. None of them are used by default, their use has to be
15
explicitly requested by passing the appropriate flags to @file{./configure}.
16

    
17
@section OpenCORE AMR
18

    
19
FFmpeg can make use of the OpenCORE libraries for AMR-NB
20
decoding/encoding and AMR-WB decoding.
21

    
22
Go to @url{http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencore-amr/} and follow the instructions for
23
installing the libraries. Then pass @code{--enable-libopencore-amrnb} and/or
24
@code{--enable-libopencore-amrwb} to configure to enable the libraries.
25

    
26
Note that OpenCORE is under the Apache License 2.0 (see
27
@url{http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0} for details), which is
28
incompatible with the LGPL version 2.1 and GPL version 2. You have to
29
upgrade FFmpeg's license to LGPL version 3 (or if you have enabled
30
GPL components, GPL version 3) to use it.

Using a cross-compiler is preferred for various reasons.
733

    
734
@subsection DJGPP
735

    
736
FFmpeg cannot be compiled because of broken system headers, add
737
@code{--extra-cflags=-U__STRICT_ANSI__} to the configure options as a
738
workaround.
739

    
740
@section OS/2
741

    
742
For information about compiling FFmpeg on OS/2 see
743
@url{http://www.edm2.com/index.php/FFmpeg}.
744

    
745
@section Unix-like
746

    
747
Some parts of FFmpeg cannot be built with version 2.15 of the GNU
748
assembler which is still provided by a few AMD64 distributions. To
749
make sure your compiler really uses the required version of gas
750
after a binutils upgrade, run:
751

    
752
@example
753
$(gcc -print-prog-name=as) --version
754
@end example
755

    
756
If not, then you should install a different compiler that has no
757
hard-coded path to gas. In the worst case pass @code{--disable-asm}
758
to configure.
759

    
760
@subsection BSD
761

    
762
BSD make will not build FFmpeg, you need to install and use GNU Make
763
(@file{gmake}).
764

    
765
@subsubsection FreeBSD
766

    
767
FreeBSD will not compile out-of-the-box due to broken system headers.
768
Passing @code{--extra-cflags=-D__BSD_VISIBLE} to configure will work
769
around the problem. This may have unexpected sideeffects, so use it at
770
your own risk. If you care about FreeBSD, please make an attempt at
771
getting the system headers fixed.
772

    
773
@subsection (Open)Solaris
774

    
775
GNU Make is required to build FFmpeg, so you have to invoke (@file{gmake}),
776
standard Solaris Make will not work. When building with a non-c99 front-end
777
(gcc, generic suncc) add either @code{--extra-libs=/usr/lib/values-xpg6.o}
778
or @code{--extra-libs=/usr/lib/64/values-xpg6.o} to the configure options
779
since the libc is not c99-compliant by default. The probes performed by
780
configure may raise an exception leading to the death of configure itself
781
due to a bug in the system shell. Simply invoke a different shell such as
782
bash directly to work around this:
783

    
784
@example
785
bash ./configure
786
@end example
787

    
788
@section Windows
789

    
790
To get help and instructions for building FFmpeg under Windows, check out

@url{http://ffmpeg.arrozcru.org/}.
793

    
794
@subsection Native Windows compilation
795

    
796
FFmpeg can be built to run natively on Windows using the MinGW tools. Install
797
the latest versions of MSYS and MinGW from @url{http://www.mingw.org/}.
798
You can find detailed installation
799
instructions in the download section and the FAQ.
800

    
801
FFmpeg does not build out-of-the-box with the packages the automated MinGW
802
installer provides. It also requires coreutils to be installed and many other
803
packages updated to the latest version. The minimum version for some packages
804
are listed below:
805

    
806
@itemize
807
@item bash 3.1
808
@item msys-make 3.81-2 (note: not mingw32-make)
809
@item w32api 3.13
810
@item mingw-runtime 3.15
811
@end itemize
812

    
813
FFmpeg automatically passes @code{-fno-common} to the compiler to work around
814
a GCC bug (see @url{http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=37216}).
815

    
816
Within the MSYS shell, configure and make with:
817

    
818
@example
819
./configure --enable-memalign-hack
820
make
821
make install
822
@end example
823

    
824
This will install @file{ffmpeg.exe} along with many other development files
825
to @file{/usr/local}. You may specify another install path using the
826
@code{--prefix} option in @file{configure}.
827

    
828
Notes:
829

    
830
@itemize
831

    
832
@item Building natively using MSYS can be sped up by disabling implicit rules
833
in the Makefile by calling @code{make -r} instead of plain @code{make}. This
834
speed up is close to non-existent for normal one-off builds and is only
835
noticeable when running make for a second time (for example in
836
@code{make install}).
837

    
838
@item In order to compile FFplay, you must have the MinGW development library
839
of SDL. Get it from @url{http://www.libsdl.org}.
840
Edit the @file{bin/sdl-config} script so that it points to the correct prefix
841
where SDL was installed. Verify that @file{sdl-config} can be launched from
842
the MSYS command line.
843

    
844
@item By using @code{./configure --enable-shared} when configuring FFmpeg,
845
you can build libavutil, libavcodec and libavformat as DLLs.
846

    
847
@end itemize
848

    
849
@subsection Microsoft Visual C++ compatibility
850

    
851
As stated in the FAQ, FFmpeg will not compile under MSVC++. However, if you
852
want to use the libav* libraries in your own applications, you can still
853
compile those applications using MSVC++. But the libav* libraries you link
854
to @emph{must} be built with MinGW. However, you will not be able to debug
855
inside the libav* libraries, since MSVC++ does not recognize the debug
856
symbols generated by GCC.
857
We strongly recommend you to move over from MSVC++ to MinGW tools.
858

    
859
This description of how to use the FFmpeg libraries with MSVC++ is based on
860
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. If you have a different version,
861
you might have to modify the procedures slightly.
862

    
863
@subsubsection Using static libraries
864

    
865
Assuming you have just built and installed FFmpeg in @file{/usr/local}.
866

    
867
@enumerate
868

    
869
@item Create a new console application ("File / New / Project") and then
870
select "Win32 Console Application". On the appropriate page of the
871
Application Wizard, uncheck the "Precompiled headers" option.
872

    
873
@item Write the source code for your application, or, for testing, just
874
copy the code from an existing sample application into the source file
875
that MSVC++ has already created for you. For example, you can copy
876
@file{libavformat/output-example.c} from the FFmpeg distribution.
877

    
878
@item Open the "Project / Properties" dialog box. In the "Configuration"
879
combo box, select "All Configurations" so that the changes you make will
880
affect both debug and release builds. In the tree view on the left hand
881
side, select "C/C++ / General", then edit the "Additional Include
882
Directories" setting to contain the path where the FFmpeg includes were
883
installed (i.e. @file{c:\msys\1.0\local\include}).
884
Do not add MinGW's include directory here, or the include files will
885
conflict with MSVC's.
886

    
887
@item Still in the "Project / Properties" dialog box, select
888
"Linker / General" from the tree view and edit the
889
"Additional Library Directories" setting to contain the @file{lib}
890
directory where FFmpeg was installed (i.e. @file{c:\msys\1.0\local\lib}),
891
the directory where MinGW libs are installed (i.e. @file{c:\mingw\lib}),
892
and the directory where MinGW's GCC libs are installed
893
(i.e. @file{C:\mingw\lib\gcc\mingw32\4.2.1-sjlj}). Then select
894
"Linker / Input" from the tree view, and add the files @file{libavformat.a},
895
@file{libavcodec.a}, @file{libavutil.a}, @file{libmingwex.a},
896
@file{libgcc.a}, and any other libraries you used (i.e. @file{libz.a})
897
to the end of "Additional Dependencies".
898

    
899
@item Now, select "C/C++ / Code Generation" from the tree view. Select
900
"Debug" in the "Configuration" combo box. Make sure that "Runtime
901
Library" is set to "Multi-threaded Debug DLL". Then, select "Release" in
902
the "Configuration" combo box and make sure that "Runtime Library" is
903
set to "Multi-threaded DLL".
904

    
905
@item Click "OK" to close the "Project / Properties" dialog box.
906

    
907
@item MSVC++ lacks some C99 header files that are fundamental for FFmpeg.
908
Get msinttypes from @url{http://code.google.com/p/msinttypes/downloads/list}
909
and install it in MSVC++'s include directory
910
(i.e. @file{C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\include}).
911

    
912
@item MSVC++ also does not understand the @code{inline} keyword used by
913
FFmpeg, so you must add this line before @code{#include}ing libav*:
914
@example
915
#define inline _inline
916
@end example
917

    
918
@item Build your application, everything should work.
919

    
920
@end enumerate
921

    
922
@subsubsection Using shared libraries
923

    
924
This is how to create DLL and LIB files that are compatible with MSVC++:
925

    
926
@enumerate
927

    
928
@item Add a call to @file{vcvars32.bat} (which sets up the environment
929
variables for the Visual C++ tools) as the first line of @file{msys.bat}.
930
The standard location for @file{vcvars32.bat} is
931
@file{C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat},
932
and the standard location for @file{msys.bat} is @file{C:\msys\1.0\msys.bat}.
933
If this corresponds to your setup, add the following line as the first line
934
of @file{msys.bat}:
935

    
936
@example
937
call "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat"
938
@end example
939

    
940
Alternatively, you may start the @file{Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt},
941
and run @file{c:\msys\1.0\msys.bat} from there.
942

    
943
@item Within the MSYS shell, run @code{lib.exe}. If you get a help message
944
from @file{Microsoft (R) Library Manager}, this means your environment
945
variables are set up correctly, the @file{Microsoft (R) Library Manager}
946
is on the path and will be used by FFmpeg to create
947
MSVC++-compatible import libraries.
948

    
949
@item Build FFmpeg with
950

    
951
@example
952
./configure --enable-shared --enable-memalign-hack
953
make
954
make install
955
@end example
956

    
957
Your install path (@file{/usr/local/} by default) should now have the
958
necessary DLL and LIB files under the @file{bin} directory.
959

    
960
@end enumerate
961

    
962
To use those files with MSVC++, do the same as you would do with
963
the static libraries, as described above. But in Step 4,
964
you should only need to add the directory where the LIB files are installed
965
(i.e. @file{c:\msys\usr\local\bin}). This is not a typo, the LIB files are
966
installed in the @file{bin} directory. And instead of adding @file{libxx.a}
967
files, you should add @file{avcodec.lib}, @file{avformat.lib}, and
968
@file{avutil.lib}. There should be no need for @file{libmingwex.a},
969
@file{libgcc.a}, and @file{wsock32.lib}, nor any other external library
970
statically linked into the DLLs. The @file{bin} directory contains a bunch
971
of DLL files, but the ones that are actually used to run your application
972
are the ones with a major version number in their filenames
973
(i.e. @file{avcodec-51.dll}).
974

    
975
@subsection Cross compilation for Windows with Linux
976

    
977
You must use the MinGW cross compilation tools available at
978
@url{http://www.mingw.org/}.
979

    
980
Then configure FFmpeg with the following options:
981
@example
982
./configure --target-os=mingw32 --cross-prefix=i386-mingw32msvc-
983
@end example
984
(you can change the cross-prefix according to the prefix chosen for the
985
MinGW tools).
986

    
987
Then you can easily test FFmpeg with Wine
988
(@url{http://www.winehq.com/}).
989

    
990
@subsection Compilation under Cygwin
991

    
992
Please use Cygwin 1.7.x as the obsolete 1.5.x Cygwin versions lack
993
llrint() in its C library.
994

    
995
Install your Cygwin with all the "Base" packages, plus the
996
following "Devel" ones:
997
@example
998
binutils, gcc4-core, make, subversion, mingw-runtime, texi2html
999
@end example
1000

    
1001
And the following "Utils" one:
1002
@example
1003
diffutils
1004
@end example
1005

    
1006
Then run
1007

    
1008
@example
1009
./configure --enable-static --disable-shared
1010
@end example
1011

    
1012
to make a static build.
1013

    
1014
The current @code{gcc4-core} package is buggy and needs this flag to build
1015
shared libraries:
1016

    
1017
@example
1018
./configure --enable-shared --disable-static --extra-cflags=-fno-reorder-functions
1019
@end example
1020

    
1021
If you want to build FFmpeg with additional libraries, download Cygwin
1022
"Devel" packages for Ogg and Vorbis from any Cygwin packages repository:
1023
@example
1024
libogg-devel, libvorbis-devel
1025
@end example
1026

    
1027
These library packages are only available from Cygwin Ports
1028
(@url{http://sourceware.org/cygwinports/}) :
1029

    
1030
@example
1031
yasm, libSDL-devel, libdirac-devel, libfaac-devel, libfaad-devel, libgsm-devel,
1032
libmp3lame-devel, libschroedinger1.0-devel, speex-devel, libtheora-devel,
1033
libxvidcore-devel
1034
@end example
1035

    
1036
The recommendation for libnut and x264 is to build them from source by
1037
yourself, as they evolve too quickly for Cygwin Ports to be up to date.
1038

    
1039
Cygwin 1.7.x has IPv6 support. You can add IPv6 to Cygwin 1.5.x by means
1040
of the @code{libgetaddrinfo-devel} package, available at Cygwin Ports.
1041

    
1042
@subsection Crosscompilation for Windows under Cygwin
1043

    
1044
With Cygwin you can create Windows binaries that do not need the cygwin1.dll.
1045

    
1046
Just install your Cygwin as explained before, plus these additional
1047
"Devel" packages:
1048
@example
1049
gcc-mingw-core, mingw-runtime, mingw-zlib
1050
@end example
1051

    
1052
and add some special flags to your configure invocation.
1053

    
1054
For a static build run
1055
@example
1056
./configure --target-os=mingw32 --enable-memalign-hack --enable-static --disable-shared --extra-cflags=-mno-cygwin --extra-libs=-mno-cygwin
1057
@end example
1058

    
1059
and for a build with shared libraries
1060
@example
1061
./configure --target-os=mingw32 --enable-memalign-hack --enable-shared --disable-static --extra-cflags=-mno-cygwin --extra-libs=-mno-cygwin
1062
@end example
1063
