Description Gideon Mayhak 2008-04-27 17:30:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The included version of Blender is compiled without any FFMPEG support.  I would
like the possibility of FFMPEG support without legal concerns.

Additional info:
I understand that FFMPEG itself cannot be included, but is it at all possible to
compile Blender with support for the libraries when present?  I would like to be
able to install Blender from Fedora, add FFMPEG from Livna or similar, and then
be able to import and export video and audio using the appropriate libraries.  I
just learned a week or so ago that I could use Blender for video editing, but I
can't because Fedora's version does not include any form of FFMPEG support.

Thank you for your time,

Gideon Mayhak

A integration of FFMPEG in any way may be only possible, if blender ma be moved
into the livna repository.
Comment 2 Gideon Mayhak 2008-04-28 20:53:30 EDT
Wouldn't you be able to work with upstream to make it so Blender uses FFMPEG in
a plugin sort of way so that it would only offer FFMPEG functionality if the
libraries were available?  Is the FFMPEG functionality so soldered in that this
would be an enormous task?
