I just compiled and installed
ffmpeg-4.0 on my Kubunut 17.10 laptop, and and I'm getting an error when trying to do conversions using the opus components. It appears that opus is not enabled, and I get this error:
[opus @ 0x55b30ae65fc0] The encoder 'opus' is experimental but experimental codecs are not enabled, add '-strict -2' if you want to use it. I added
-strict -2 to the command:
ffmpeg -strict -2 -y -i 40.mp4 40.opus, but this doesn't seem to help.
I saw various people say that opus is included by default now, and others said that I needed to enable
--enable-libopus during compilation. Every time I try to do this, it never seems to work though. I tried
./configure --enable-libopus and
make --enable-libopus, but the subroutines just acted with confusion.
