Software News   Software News : FFmpeg 0.6 released for AmigaOS 4
   posted by MickJT on 8-Jul-2010 12:34:22 (5040 reads)
June 15th saw the completion and release of FFmpeg 0.6. Now it comes to the AmigaOS platform.

Since the last SVN build of FFmpeg for OS4, it now supports Deluxe Paint animations, CD Graphics, Apple Core Audio, Chinese AVS video, Adobe Filmstrip, Dolby TrueHD, Sony Wave64, Psygnosis YOP, VP8 video, WMA 9 Professional, Blu-Ray audio, DivX subtitles, the WebM file format, support for RTMP streams and much more.

It comes in both a Generic PPC and Altivec version (supplied as a .gpatch file).

It should, with some luck, work on OS4.0.


Also included is FFplay, a video player similar to MPlayer, supporting all the formats and codecs of FFmpeg, but will likely require OS4.1 Update 1 or better for the SDL library it is built with, and a fast CPU.

x264 encoding is broken and has bad quality, but has been included anyway. It may work properly on machines with Altivec support. This is yet to be tested.

ffmpeg 0.6 and libx264 revision 100 have incompatible default settings. Due to this, .ffpreset files can be used and are included. libx264 encoding was not available in the previous OS4 port. No functionality has been lost.

You can download it from OS4Depot.

Thanks for this new release.

Note that the current version of ffmpGUI on OS4Depot does not work with this version of
ffmpeg. I have an updated version that works with ffmpeg 0.6 that I will release soon.

A couple notes about ffmpeg 0.6 that I noticed from my testing.

The new codecs, with the exception of subtitles, are decode only so you can read them but not save them.

The one codec that is not supported for encoding in ffmpeg 0.6 that is supported by the older version is arm_wb (Adaptive Multi-Rate WideBand). As a result I've modified the arm_wb audio codec setting to encode in arm_nb when using ffmpeg 0.6. This souldn't be a big problem but if you want to encode in arm_wb, you should continue to use the older version of ffmpeg.
(MickJT, please let us know if this has changed since the last verion you sent me.)

When released ffmpegGUI will continue to support the older version SVN-r16701 as well as version 0.6.

Thanks again for this new release.

I'll just re-paste what I posted on Amigans.net.

---

You mean wide-band, not narrow-band.

No change in that department since the versions you've tested.

From www.ffmpeg.org

"Support for AMR-WB encoding has been removed since libopencore-amr does not support it"

Hello,

Thanks a lot for this release

I'm sure this program will be verry often used on SAM460 and X1000 in a near futur

I could also seen that you have made a great pleasure also for ktadd (and he know well the subject).

I tried the Altivec version of ffplay with some 5 videos and it worked flawlessly.
Thanks!

where can download the sources of this ?

also the sources of actual MOS Version i not see.

because both versions use no ixemul there need lots changes in source add again and again in every new version, so the sources of the ffmpeg homepage can not just compile with configure and make.

so there need sources here

@bernd_afa, if you check the thread on amigans.net, there's only 1 small change for libavformat.

The command-line used to compile is printed out when you run ffmpeg. The sources haven't been uploaded because there's basically no change at all. Just got them from www.ffmpeg.org

http://ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-0.6.tar.bz2

All the libs it uses are on OS4Depot. Again, you won't find sources there either because there's no change. It wasn't all that hard to compile. Just changed the location it looks for ffpresets, and the slight Amiga-style path fix you can see on the amigans.net thread, and then compiled it with the options you can see when you run it.

Edit: On OS4 as least, and i'm guessing MOS too, there is no ixemul. The SDK has everything you need, and you hardly have to do anything to compile things. Only on OS3 is it very difficult to compile things without ixemul, at least in my own experience.

@Mickjt

Can your ffplay version can play files direct from internet(by add the url as filename) and your build support full streaming for inet. ?
ffmpeg is design that most features can disable(inet acceess too).can you post your config.h file so can see what features your Build really support ?

I know OS4 use C lib for embedded system called newlib

http://sourceware.org/newlib/

but i dont see Unix socket access.So i think you need change all to amiga bsdsocket.
Or does OS4 have a additional lib that emulate Unix sockets ?

@Bernd_AFA

Again, the changes are so trivial it doesn't even make sense to upload a diff. In case you wouldn't know, libnix doesn't lack as much as you think. In fact, just cbrtf(), iirc. And regarding sockets, there's nothing to do, except a couple trivial changes like ioctlsocket() -> IoctlSocket().
There was also is_dos_path() to implement, and that's about it.

AFAIK OS4's Newlib has nothing to do with the Newlib you have mentioned, it's a different C library implementation.

I've already made the required code changes in ffmpegGUI to work with this verison and hopefully avoid breakage on new versions in the future. Due to other higher priority things going on in my life right now I won't be albe to package it and upload it for a couple more weeks though. Hold tight, it will come.

OS4 use this for embedded Systems newlib, see the copying.newlib file on amiga OS4 sdk it begin same as this.

""""

there are lots diffrent parameter types , but can you give me a link to actual MOS sdk and crosscompilers for cygwin so i can try to compile a MOS version

I install just for fun OS4 cygwin compilers,

http://cross.zerohero.se/os4.html

i do ./configure --arch=ppc --enable-cross-compile --cross-prefix=ppc-amigaos-

and configure fail.

Unix software should compile with configure and make i think, so save time.

i try to compile for OS4, maybe i can learn something from it.but most time i type configure configuration fail, or features are wrong detect so i cant learn from it and i must do all alone.

Ask diego, because he know now how to do that, with OS4 cygwin compilers from zerohero site.

maybe untill now, posters are guy who compile on AOS4 or morphOS....

It doesnt matter on what platform compile.
Unix programs are design to be platform independent and design to compile with ./configure and make.

Does this on the MOS or OS4 on native work with ffmpeg ?

this work on all platforms in that way and if that not work on future AOS without changes, then the AOS Unix compatible API should enhance and not the porters need do much typing work every new version to get a program running.

On amiga OS there are too few devs, so another reason to make porting of programs in same with as other systems.

@mrod:

I do not use Cygwin, and never will, Linux is a lot more fun/pleasant

@bernd:

Exactly, the "configure" script works the same way on all platforms, maybe all you have to do is "./configure --help" ...

Just run configure script on your Amiga. Just run that thing without any parameters and wait.

If you have a working crosscompile, maybe you can check if ffmpeg configure correct

currently i have no files get from from MickJT to try again to compile

and this work with ffmpeg on MOS ?

where are crosscompilers for MOS and where is newest SDK for MOS that work on this crosscompilers ?

Well, last time i've compiled ffmpeg (for Amiga.sf) it got configured and compiled OOTB, IIRC.

The compilers (native or cross) for os4 are greatly improved to port lnx stuff quite straight forward, you only need to worry about paths usage, most times at least... (and before you ask, no...[v]fork() stuff does not compile
