New FFmpeg Build

Post by mgm21m » Mon Nov 04, 2019 7:50 pm

Hello All

first Thanks a lot about your wonderful software ,

there's new release of FFmpeg (4.2.1) which support new HEVC codecs (Specially from New Canon XF Cameras)

I tried to use this build inside FFASTRANS but with no luck

can you try to embed the new release with your build

Thanks and Best Regards

Hey mgm21m,

can you tell us what exactly you did not get to work when exchanging the existing ffmpeg against 4.2.1? I just tested very quickly, exchanged the existing .exe's against 4.2.1 Zeranoe default build and did some random avci encoding whithout problems.

Hey,
i understood that your codec is not supported by the older ffmpeg version but you wrote you already tried replacing the shipped ffmpeg version.
So my question is when you download both, the 32 bit and 64 bit version of ffmpeg 4.2.1 from zeranoe (use the "static" version) and you replace ffmpeg.exe, ffplay and ffprobe in this directory:
%ffastrans%\Processors\ffmpeg

What is the issue with that?

Oh, if you have avisynth based filters in your workflow, then you don't need an ffmpeg update but an update for the ffms2 source plugin.
Do you know if you decode using avisynth or ffmpeg? - if no you could upload your workflow please...

Oh, yeah, in that case avisynth or better the ffms2 plugin is the decoder as you do use the A/V Media Decoder NOde. But looking at your workflow, maybe it is good to start by just getting rid of the avisynth decoder:
You do not need the A/V Media node in your workflow, just delete it. Maybe it works then right away... If not, you can still go by exchanging ffmpeg instead of ffms2...


Anyway, updating FFMS2 is not as straight forward as updating ffmpeg.
I can just post where i would start digging for the moment but i cannot yet post a full tutorial on how to update successfully.

What you need to exchange is ffms2.dll and ffmsindex.exe in x86 and or x64 directory here:
ffastrans\Processors\avs_plugins\ffms2

You can start looking for new builds here:

best of luck for the moment :-)

OK, so when using the A/V Decoding node, it should help using an updated Version of FFMS2.

Please try to replace the files ffmsindex.exe and ffms2.dll by their updated versions in the corresponding folders from the download.
Folders of interest:
ffastrans\Processors\avs_plugins\ffms2\x64
ffastrans\Processors\avs_plugins\ffms2\x86

download a recent ffms2 build here:
