libavcodec 53 no longer available on Ubuntu 14.04

Post by Kebast » Wed May 07, 2014 7:45 pm

When trying to run MakeMKV 1.8.10 on Ubuntu 14.04 I get the following error:

Code: Select all

/usr/bin$ ./makemkv
/usr/bin/makemkvcon: error while loading shared libraries: libavcodec.so.53: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Has anyone worked around this? I tried building with the latest version of ffmpeg, but nothing changed.

Yes. Same error with my makemkv perfectly working until I've upgraded my linux to the 14.04 version this morning.

You will definitely need to recompile makemkv against all your new librairies if you upgrade your distribution. Fortunatley, that should be all that's required.

This was a new install of 14.04. I did compile 1.8.10 with the most current version of ffmpeg as detailed Here

Is there a way to force makemkv to use the new libavcodec 54?

Oops, guess any post with a link has to be approved.

Was a new install of 14.04, built makemkv as normal using the most current version of ffmpeg.

Any way force makemkv to use the newest libavcodec 54.

kevmitch is right. I'm not a Ubuntu user but only the open source parts link against libavcodec and it won't be tied to a specific version. It wouldn't mention libavcodec.so.53 if it hadn't picked it up somewhere while building. Search your system for any instances of it.

Well, like I said, it's a brand new install, and version 53 isn't even available for Ubuntu 14.04. Guess I'll try again, but not sure where to go from here.

I built again WITHOUT using the latest version of ffmpeg and now it works. There was also a system update today to many of the libav packages. Guess one of those two changes fixed the problem :).

Is there an easy way to make Ubuntu 14.04 and makemkv work together? I have tried recompiling it, to no avail. Thanks!

Kebast, I'm having the exact same issue here. Could you clarify what you mean by compiling without using ffmpeg? Thanks!

Nevermind, I was able to compile. Turns out I had to redownload the oss and bin files. Apparently, copying them over from another drive is a no no. :lol:
