All distributions, recommended: How to install the transcoding tools? (VIMP 3.6.x+)
As of VIMP 3.6.x we can use the static builds of FFmpeg (and FFprobe). Instead of installing, we just have to download and extract an archive that includes a running FFmpeg and FFprobe with all requirements.
Download and extract:
cd /opt/ wget https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/builds/ffmpeg-git-amd64-static.tar.xz tar --xz -xvf ffmpeg-git-amd64-static.tar.xz mv ffmpeg-git-XXXXXXXX-amd64-static/ ffmpeg (Replace XXXXXXXX in the filename)
FFmpeg and FFprobe are already installed now.
Path to FFmpeg: /opt/ffmpeg/ffmpeg
Path to FFprobe: /opt/ffmpeg/ffprobe
Set Backend -> Configuration -> Transcoding OpenSource Settings -> AAC Encoder to Native FFmpeg AAC encoder. Additional information at: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC
Depending on whether the Debian or Redhat packet manager is used you can install "exiftool"
- with apt-get:
apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl
- with yum:
yum install perl-Image-ExifTool
For the transcoding of 360-degree videos (VIMP 4.2 and higher), please check whether the exiftool version is at least 10.8. If this is not the case, please install exiftool as described here: https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/install.html
After the update, please update the path to exiftool in the configuration under Transcoding OpenSource -> exiftool path (e.g. /opt/exiftool/exiftool), if it has changed.
