Remarks

  • The binaries are compiled for Mac OS X 10.9 and later. They will not run on earlier versions.
  • The included x265 library is a multi-bit version (8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit) since snapshot 86950-g1bef008 and release 3.3.4.
  • If FONTCONFIG_PATH is not set, ffmpeg will set it to ./fonts/ (relative to the binary).
  • Some uncompress applications have issues with .7z files. If you see a message Illegal instruction: 4 or other messages that indicate the binary is not valid, the binary hasn't been extracted correctly.
  • FFserver is no longer part of the FFmpeg project.
  • I'm not in any way affiliated with ffmpeg.org. Sending me bug reports is futile.
  • No more DMG files thanks to Apple and their notarizing scam.
  • On macOS 10.15 (Catalina) the binary has to be removed from quarantine: xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine <path_to_binary>

GnuPG key to verify snapshots and releases

The packages are signed with key id 0x476C4B611A660874 with fingerprint 20F6 EA3E 0CFD 6B4C 5344 7A73 476C 4B61 1A66 0874.
This key can be retrieved in the following ways:

  • download from my server
  • extract from keys.openpgp.org
  • via command line, e.g. curl https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/0x1A660874.asc | gpg --import

APIs

Download API

There's an easy way to download the latest binaries by using a download API:

https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/get[release][/(ffmpeg|ffprobe|ffplay|ffserver)][/(7z|zip)][/sig]

while the yellow paths are the default.

To download the latest
  • ffmpeg snapshot as .7z: https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/get
  • ffmpeg snapshot as .zip: https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/get/zip
  • ffprobe snapshot as .7z: https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/get/ffprobe
  • ffprobe release as zip: https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/getrelease/ffprobe/zip
  • ffmpeg release as zip: https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/getrelease/zip
To download the gpg signature for any of the files above, just append /sig to the URL.

Please note: wget requires the --trust-server-names option and curl the -JL option, otherwise the name of the downloaded file is always the last part of the URL.

Info API

With this API it is possible to retrieve information about binaries, their internal and external libraries, download info, and so on.

https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/info[/binary][/type]

  • binary (optional), can be any of ffmpeg, ffprobe, ffplay, ffserver, limits the output to the binary specified (returns both types)
  • type (optional), can be any of snapshot or release, limits the output to the binary and type specified
Examples:
https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/info - shows information about all binaries available on this page
https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/info/ffmpeg/snapshot - shows information about the latest ffmpeg snapshot

It is also possible to search for and retrieve info about a specific version (exact and partial search):

https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/info/version
https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/info/binary/version

  • version, can be an exact version number like 4.1.3 or 94155-gbe1643be31, or the first 5 characters of a snapshot version like 94155. It can also be a complete filename with or without the extension, like ffprobe-94155-gbe1643be31.7z
  • binary (optional), can be any of ffmpeg, ffprobe, ffplay, ffserver, limits the output to the binary specified. Must not be used with a complete filename.
Examples:
