[FFmpeg-user] FFMPEG libx264 not found error

Hello, Niket.

This message means that the libx264 binaries and headers are not installed or were not found.

FFmpeg itself does not come with libx264 - the libx264.c file is just a wrapper for libavcodec to interact with libx264.

The solution is to install libx264-dev from your distribution's repositories, or get its source, build it and install it before building FFmpeg.

Hope this can help you and good encodes for everybody,

Victor Carneiro
