Fork of https://github.com/jonathanong/heroku-buildpack-ffmpeg-latest all credit goes to the original maintainer, but since the code is published under a MIT License, we decided to fork it to prevent any supply channel security issues and due to the download of a static ffmpeg from johnvansickle.com failing randomly.
A Heroku buildpack for ffmpeg that always downloads the latest static build. Unlike other build packs, I never compile anything.
Run the following from the heroku command line:
heroku buildpacks:add --index 1 https://github.com/vaha-technology/heroku-buildpack-ffmpeg-latest.git --app HEROKU_APP
Set HEROKU_APP to the heroku app you want to refer to
You can set a custom download URL by setting the variable
Note: This buildpack should be added before the main language buildpack (by using
since the application process types are calculated from the last buildpack in the list if no
Procfile is specified.
Copy the snippet above into CLI.
