Thank you for beta-testing MakeMKV. Please see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1054 for information about latest version.
The linux release includes full source code for MakeMKV GUI, libmakemkv multiplexer library and libdriveio MMC drive interrogation library. Please use this forum for an up to date download and setup instructions. You need to follow the steps outlined below to compile and install the application and all libraries.
binary and source packages:http://www.makemkv.com/download/makemkv-bin-1.8.6.tar.gzhttp://www.makemkv.com/download/makemkv-oss-1.8.6.tar.gzPlease note that file naming scheme changed in version 1.7.5
Make sure you have all required tools and libraries installed. You'll need GNU compiler and linker and header and library files for following libraries: glibc, openssl-0.9.8, zlib, expat, libavcodec, qt4. You may use the following command to install all prerequisites on debian-based system like ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libc6-dev libssl-dev libexpat1-dev libavcodec-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libqt4-dev
Unpack both packages and starting from source package do the following steps for each package:
make -f makefile.linux
sudo make -f makefile.linux install
The application will be installed as "/usr/bin/makemkv".
Starting with version 1.8.6 MakeMKV requires and links directly to libavcodec. Please note that most distributions ship a very outdated version of libavcodec (either from ffmpeg or libav projects). You will have to compile the latest ffmpeg and modify makefile accordingly if you need a FLAC encoder that handles 24-bit audio.
Please share your experience in this forum.
