Apparent libavcodec version detection bug

Post by GTKNarwhal » Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:37 pm

A week ago I was able to install MakeMKV 1.10.5 on an Ubuntu 16.04 system without issue. Yesterday, the installation failed while running configure in the OSS directory, with the error message:
configure: error: The libavcodec library is too old. Please get a recent one from http://www.ffmpeg.org
. I was using the latest version (3.3) from ffmpeg.org, so I had a difficult time believing this. The only difference I can detect between now and a week ago is ffmpeg went from 3.2.? to 3.3.

Guessing that configure is not accurately detecting the libavcodec version number, I commented out the version check (lines 15969 - 15971) from configure I was able to complete the installation and am currently transcoding the BD of A Clockwork Orange. :D

I got this exact same problem today. Downloaded and built ffmpeg 3.3, installed, and when I went to build makemkv-oss-1.10.5 it failed to configure claiming libavcodec was too old.

Same here. I am going to try the previous version of ffmpeg now.

A month later and still a problem with ffmpeg-3.3.2

Has anyone got a fix for this yet?

And now, several months later, I decide to upgrade to 1.10.8, not knowing that this will be impossible. Of course ignorant of this issue.

I get the same libavcodec version too old detection fault, or LIBAVCODEC_MAJOR_VERSION wrong.

I have tried several rebuilds of several ffmpeg versions: 3.4.1, 3.3.3, 2.7.4 (?, not sure, it was the one that worked before).

I have tried to roll back to makemkv 1.9.9 - this one worked before. Now this one fails with "application failed to initialize" when I try to start it.

This started because of an attempt to see if makemkv could encode atmos truehd from a file I have here into lpcm. I decided to use ffmpeg command line for this instead, it works fine.

But I need makemkv to be able to get bd disks ripped to the hd, and I need atmos truehd working for this. This does not work without compiling with ffmpeg.

An updated guide for compiling and installing makemkv, one that actually works, would be appreciated.

If someone is still reading:

Any idea how to roll back to version 1.9.9 using ffmpeg 2.7.2?

Seems the forum and the software is dead, very unfortunate, as this is the only way to legally watch bd movies in a proper way.

Good News, everyone! I think I found the problem (more or less) and a solution!

The problem: The guide makes you compile a full ffmpeg with a lot of shit that we don't need at all. In this case some CUDA Hardware-Acceleration-Support (used for video-decoding) is somehow getting in the way.

The solution: Disable (almost) everything we don't need when configuring ffmpeg:

Code: Select all

./configure --prefix=/tmp/ffmpeg --enable-static --disable-shared --enable-pic --disable-yasm --disable-all --disable-autodetect --disable-everything --enable-swresample --enable-avcodec --enable-encoder=flac,aac --enable-decoders
This will only build the libraries and the encoders we need, no ffmpeg binaries or documentation. I wasn't really able to figure out which decoders makemkv needs, so I had to enable all of them, but --disable-autodetect still keeps unneeded stuff like CUDA disabled.

Excellent, it works. Tried with makemkv 1.10.8 and ffmpeg 3.4.1.

There is a linker dependency ordering issue at the root of this: When checking on the various bits required to compile the OSS portion of MKV, the library 'libavutil.a' is being injected too far down the link order.

Not sure what controls this as AUTOCONF is used. Trying to peel the onion. The offending (configuration test) sequence that fails to compile is:

Code: Select all

gcc -g -O2 -I/usr/local/ffmpeg/include conftest.c -L/usr/local/ffmpeg/lib -lavcodec -lXv -lX11 -lXext -lSDL2 -lass -lssl -lcrypto -lSDL2 -lvdpau -lX11 -lva -lva-x11 -lX11 -lva -lva-drm -lva -lxcb -lxcb-shm -lxcb -lxcb-xfixes -lxcb-render -lxcb-shape -lxcb -lxcb-shape -lxcb -lsndio -lasound -lSDL2 -lssl -lcrypto -lx264 -lvpx -lm -lvpx -lm -lvpx -lm -lvpx -lm -lvorbisenc -lvorbis -ltheoraenc -ltheoradec -logg -lopus -lmp3lame -lfreetype -lass -lm -ldl -llzma -lbz2 -lz -pthread -lswresample -lm -lavutil -lm -lrt -o conftest 
Altering this sequence to:

Code: Select all

gcc -g -O2 -I/usr/local/ffmpeg/include conftest.c -L/usr/local/ffmpeg/lib -lavcodec -lavutil -lXv -lX11 -lXext -lSDL2 -lass -lssl -lcrypto -lSDL2 -lvdpau -lX11 -lva -lva-x11 -lX11 -lva -lva-drm -lva -lxcb -lxcb-shm -lxcb -lxcb-xfixes -lxcb-render -lxcb-shape -lxcb -lxcb-shape -lxcb -lsndio -lasound -lSDL2 -lssl -lcrypto -lx264 -lvpx -lm -lvpx -lm -lvpx -lm -lvpx -lm -lvorbisenc -lvorbis -ltheoraenc -ltheoradec -logg -lopus -lmp3lame -lfreetype -lass -lm -ldl -llzma -lbz2 -lz -pthread -lswresample -lm -lm -lrt -o conftest 
results in a successful pass on the configure step, however, it must then also be passed along to the OSS compilation phase.
