I am not a terminal power user, but comfortable enough to write small scripts and use applications like ffmpeg, which I rely on.
I’ve just tried to encode a video as usual and got the following error:
Unknown encoder 'libfdk_aac'
I never had that before and didn’t change anything. I then tried removing and reinstalling ffmpeg using homebrew with the
--with-fdk-aac option. Didn’t work:
Warning: ffmpeg: this formula has no --with-fdk-aac option so it will be ignored!
Weird. I then checked using
brew options ffmpeg but that doesn’t return anything. Then I tried
brew install fdk-aac and it say that it is already installed.
Now I don’t know what to do anymore. I have to deliver a bunch of videos to certain specs and these include encoding the audio with the Frauenhofer AAC codec.
I apologise if this is a stupid question, or I am missing something obvious. As I said, I am not a programmer, unfortunately. And I am new here. But I am starting to get nervous and this seems like the most active place for discussion.
