Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

libavcodec/libfdk-aacenc.c error while compiling ffmpeg

I've been suggested to write in this forum because of my problem with libfdk-aacenc.c error while compiling ffmpeg.

I'm trying to install FFMPEG on my Raspeberry following this procedure:

While doing this step of the procedure:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -y xserver-xorg-dev libxext-dev build-essential libxi-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libglew-dev
tar xvfz jpegsrc*
cd jpeg-9c
./configure --enable-shared --prefix=$CONFIGURE_PREFIX
make -j4
sudo make install

I'm getting this error while compiling:

Code: [Select]
libavcodec/libfdk-aacenc.c:289:34: error: ‘AACENC_InfoStruct {aka struct <anonymous>}’ has no member named ‘encoderDelay’; did you mean ‘nDelay’?

Can you please help me?  :(

There was a major API change on libfdk-aac side (FDKv2) on 2018-8-31, and the error is because you are using recent libfdk-aac and old ffmpeg that does not yet support newer API.

You need ffmpeg at least newer than this commit:

Hi nu774 . Can you help me to understand which step shall I update of this procedure? (

While failing, I was doing steps from 54 to 58. Shall I change the release in line 54? Or remove/add anything in line 56 (.configure)

Thanks a lot!

I can't answer your question because I don't know why the script specifically fetches 3.4 branch of ffmpeg.
Alternatively, you can fetch older release of fdk-aac from here:

How to fetch old release? Can you explain me the procedure?

I'm under no obligation to feed you from a spoon, don't PM me about this.
Why don't you ask the guy who wrote it?

I asked him but it seems to be worst than you to give advice. If you don't want to give me support it doesn't matter. I don't like people behaving like you. I prefer to don't solve the issue rather than crying to get your help.

The reason why I'm pushing you via PM is because it's more than a week trying to install this package but unfortunately the code is bugged. If the code would have been bug-free I would not have any reason to open this post.

At some point if I'll not solve the issue alone I'll escalate to someone having a higher rule in order to educate who write open source code on how to correctly answer users like me.

Thanks a lot! Really!
