@dbermond I understand your point of view, but ffmpeg-full-git just adds way too much dependencies, and builds a ton of things for specific hardware... whereas rav1e is an infinitely useful feature of the master ffmpeg branch... I don't even want to try encoding to AV1 without rav1e...

EDIT: I made ffmpeg-rav1e-git, with rav1e pre-enabled.

@zanny rav1e is still not used by repository ffmpeg. Since this package is the VCS (-git) variant of repository ffmpeg, it also does not have rav1e support for now. When repository ffmpeg adds it, I'll add it here too.

If you want rav1e support on ffmpeg git master you can use ffmpeg-full-git.

Could also add rav1e (rav1e / --enable-librav1e) now. Built it myself and it works fine.

@toggleton dav1d was missing. Thanks for pointing this. Package updated with the addition of dav1d.

toggleton commented on 2020-02-23 12:00

Can you add depends=( 'dav1d' --enable-libdav1d \ dav1d is a lot faster in decoding than libaom(still needed for av1 encoding) and is even the default decoder in ffmpeg

Cannot install and build with yay after x264 upstream update.

Can you please add as a dependency? Most other ffmpeg PKGBUILDs on the AUR, and even the upstream ffmpeg package in extra, are built against dav1d now, so it seems like a bit of an oversight not to have it here.

Provides requires version numbers to function properly. This line will add all versions at once. provides=("${provides[@]/%/=${pkgver%%.r*}}")

@Schlaefer It looks like that ffmpeg-qsv is currently linking against the wrong file, as it's using libmfx in depends. Its maintainer is already aware of the problem.

This package builds in the correct way. That's because it works for you and ffmpeg-qsv does not.

As you need ffmpeg with multiple additional features, I suggest you to use ffmpeg-full instead of manually editing the PKGBUILD here.

Schlaefer commented on 2019-07-17 20:29


Thanks for your answer (and this package).

For context: I usually use ffmpeg-qsv, which is broken for me currently (I guess because of the latest intel-media-driver update). Whatever the case, I assumed this package will work, and it does, except for audio encoding.

My go-to line is

ffmpeg -init_hw_device qsv=hw -filter_hw_device hw -i <in> -vf hwupload=extra_hw_frames=64,format=qsv' -c:v hevc_qsv -q 22 -c:a libfdk_aac -vbr 5 <out>

but libfkd_aac isn't available and bitrate limiting audio with another encoder (aac) doesn't seem to work, essentially rendering qsv unfeasible if you don't just pass through audio.

PS: Adding "--enable-libfdk_aac" to this PKDBUILD solved my issues.
