- Remove the without-ffmpeg path in the spec file. We just support
building libav-tools with libraries from ffmpeg (in fact, we remove
the code of the libav libraries in the %setup section). So now
use-ffmpeg-libs.patch is applied unconditionally. Also removed
unused configure options.
2018-03-21 -
- Disable the building of libav* libraries and use the ones
from ffmpeg instead. As a result, only the libav-tools package
is built. To go back to building libav "as intended by upstream"
(generating all packages) just use --without-ffmpeg . Add patch to
change the Makefiles accordingly:
* use-ffmpeg-libs.patch
