FFmpeg Tools is required - after installed?

Postby broken » Tue Sep 27, 2016 5:13 pm

Just picked up my miniMAD and tried to export a quick test map from Madmapper 2.5b5

It throws up a dialog saying:

"FFmpeg Tools is required to export to miniMAD.
Would you like to download it now?"
NO/YES

Selecting YES to download, chrome opens, I download the pkg installer, run it..

Relaunch Madmapper.. Export to miniMAD and I get the same dialog asking if I want to download FFmpeg Tools..

Knowing that I just installed FFmpeg Tools from the Garagecube website, I figure I might need a reboot before it can find FFmpeg Tools..

Nope.. same issue. Can't export because it keeps asking me if I want to download FFmpeg Tools.

Playing back 1 clip in Madmapper it says Player: FFMPEG Player

Not sure why Madmapper keeps on asking.. Anyone have a clue?

Not sure whats up with the pkg installer.

After a few google searches on how to manually install FFmpeg, I stumbled upon Homebrew - a terminal package manager for OSX

http://brew.sh/index.html

installed via terminal command: /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homeb ... er/install)"

then ran: brew install ffmpeg --with-tools

Problem solved, and the Export dialog pops up instead of MM asking if I want to download FFmpeg constantly.

Cheers

I have the same issue with the latest version of madmapper.

I tried the homebrew you described but that did not work.
How to proper install FFmpeg Tools? anyone?

/ edit: finally it did work by using the instructions on this page:

Please check the existence of ffmpeg binaries in /usr/local/bin/ through the terminal:
# ls /usr/local/bin/ff*

If the FFmpeg installation went well, you should have:
/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg
/usr/local/bin/ffplay
/usr/local/bin/ffprobe
/usr/local/bin/ffserver

If those files are missing, MadMapper will keep asking for FFmpeg binaries installation.
