Download binary files for
ffmpeg, ffprobe, ffserver and ffplay

ffbinaries provides statically linked binary files (executables) for ffmpeg, ffprobe, ffserver and ffplay.

You can grab what you need from Downloads page, use Node.js module or connect directly to the HTTP API.

Binaries are available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Components availability

Please consult Downloads page for availability of components.

For example to use ffplay on Linux you'll have to stick to version 3.2 and even then it's available only for x86 and x86-64 platforms.

I will be looking into compiling the binaries myself in the long term to provide full coverage of components as well as versions with and without proprietary codecs.

Get in touch via this repo's issues or pull requests if you'd like to help.
