  • Resolution set to invalid

The VPX decoder for VP9 bitstreams is invoked using -vcodec livbpx-vp9

comment:7 Changed 2 months ago by rroller

Just following up here in hopes it helps anyone who might run across this. I'm compiling both libvpx and ffmpeg from source. I needed to include --extra-libs="-lpthread -lm" to the ./configure of ffmpeg, without that, libvpx-vp9 wasn't picked up.

comment:8 Changed 2 months ago by cehoyos

It seems unlikely that -lm was needed.

comment:9 Changed 2 months ago by rroller

Can you expand on that?
That single line makes the difference between working and not working.
I found it on https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu

Without the line I get:

D.V.L. vp9                  Google VP9 

With:

DEV.L. vp9                  Google VP9 (decoders: vp9 libvpx-vp9 ) (encoders: libvpx-vp9 )

I understand what you are saying now. -lm isn't required, I verified. I only need --extra-libs="-lpthread"
