Heroku buildpack: FFMpeg with prebuilt x264 and fdk_acc

This is a Heroku buildpack for using ffmpeg in your project.
It doesn't do anything else, so to actually compile your app you should use heroku-buildpack-multi to combine it with a real buildpack.


To use this buildpack, you should prepare .buildpacks file that contains this buildpack url and your real buildpack url.

$ ls

$ cat .buildpacks

$ heroku create --buildpack https://github.com/rhinobuccaneers/heroku-buildpack-multi

$ git push heroku master

You can verify installing ffmpeg by following command.

$ heroku run "ffmpeg -version"


This buildpack comes with ffmpeg configured like so:

./configure --enable-static \
--disable-shared \
--disable-asm \
--extra-libs="-L$LIBSS/lib" \
--extra-cflags="-I$LIBSS/include" \
--prefix=/app/vendor/ffmpeg \
--enable-libfdk-aac \
--enable-nonfree \
--enable-libx264 \

It also contains all prebuilt dependencies needed to run ffmpeg with x264 and fdk_acc.

Nothing else is needed.
