AV with mac for debugging purposes
This is a patch that I've been carrying in my patch queue for a while. It allows to use FFmpeg/LibAV with firefox and use FFmpeg h264/aac decoder instead of CoreAudio/CoreVideo. Instructions to enable FFmpeg on a mac are as follow: compile nightly with "ac_add_options --enable-ffmpeg" in your .mozconfig Install macport ffmpeg-devel port. Start nightly with DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib Sometimes that may prevent nightly from starting, if you have installed libraries that are incompatible with system one (such as sqlite3). In which case, you can build your own FFmpeg as follow. I use FFmpeg and branch release/2.4 $ ./configure --enable-debug --enable-shared --disable-stripping --enable-nonfree --prefix=$PWD/build $ make $ make install then start nightly with: DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$PWD/build/lib replace $PWD/build with the path you intend to install FFmpeg to. in about:config, set media.fragmented-mp4.ffmpeg.enabled to true
Enable FFmpeg use for mac
