A complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and video  |  https://ffmpeg.org/


FFmpeg is a multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge. No matter if they were designed by some standards committee, the community or a corporation.

Creating the 'free' tarball

  1. Update the Version in the spec file.
  2. Set the Release to 0 in the spec file.
  3. Set pkg_suffix to %nil
  4. Do a full build locally: fedpkg mockbuild --with full_build
  5. Run ./ffmpeg_update_free_sources.sh results_ffmpeg/5.0/0.fc35/build.log This will update the ffmpeg_free_sources file list. Note that header files will need to be manually added to the ffmpeg_free_sources file list.
  6. Run ./ffmpeg_gen_free_tarball.sh to create the tarball.
  7. Set pkg_suffix to -free again
  8. Set the Release to 1 in the spec file.
  9. Do a scratch build.


  1. Edit ffmpeg_free_sources and add missing files
  2. Run ./ffmpeg_gen_free_tarball.sh to create the tarball.
  3. Do a scratch build.
