#3972 closed defect (invalid)

-hls_flags are not enabled or it doesn't work

Reported by: Jonatan Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: 2.4.1 Keywords: hls
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
I would like to use the -hls_flags but I can't get it working. I've tried downloading the latest compiled ffmpeg and also tried to compile mine with the option --enable-muxer=hls.

It's listed on the documentation

I get this error

Jonatans-iMac:FFmpeg-n2.4.1 jonatan$ ./ffmpeg -i /Users/jonatan/test.mp4 -hls_flags single_file output.m3u8

Unrecognized option 'hls_flags'.
Error splitting the argument list: Option not found

On the GitHub repository it also says that all the Muxers are enabled by default so it should work even without the --enable-muxer=hls option.

Would be greatly appreciated any help! Thanks a lot for your time.

The documentation you read is for current FFmpeg git head, in the documentation that comes with FFmpeg 2.4 (and 2.4.1) you will not find any mention of -hls_flags (because it doesn't exist).

Replying to cehoyos:
Hello cehoyos

I'm so sorry for the confusion. I thought the documentation was for the "stable" release. I have just cloned the repo and it's working fine.

Thanks for your time.
