mp4creator Resubmission


Mpeg4ip is now back in MacPorts! So, a ‘sudo port -v selfupdate’ should bring things in order. For those that used the tgz from the ticket or the project page, no further action should be needed. I did the same and no uninstall/install was required.

Thanks to jmr@ for committing the submission. My users and I appreciate it!

As you may know, yet again the Macports people have removed the port. A submission for its reinstatement is pending. For those that can’t wait, the port can be found here here. If you do install it from what is contained in the tarball, remember to uninstall it and reinstall it from Macports so that upgrades/etc will work in the future should they come.

To install from the tarball, decompress the tarball somewhere. Then in the terminal, enter that directory. The command, “sudo port -v install” (without quotes) is all that is needed at this point.

I will update this post when the Macports people have decided on the port submission.


Corrupt files required moving the tgz file elsewhere. See above link to get it if you haven’t already. Instructions on using it are in the striked link if you don’t know how.

    Thanks a lot! I installed it. Now my problem is…

    Seems stream 0 codec frame rate differs from container frame rate: 47.95 (54042/1127) -> 23.98 (24000/1001)
    Input #0, matroska, from ‘HomeMadeVideo.mkv’:
    Duration: 02:33:11.45, start: 0.000000, bitrate: N/A
    Stream #0.0(eng): Video: h264, yuv420p, 1280×536, PAR 1:1 DAR 160:67, 23.98 tbr, 1k tbn, 47.95 tbc
    Stream #0.1(eng): Subtitle: 0x0000
    Stream #0.2: Audio: ac3, 48000 Hz, stereo, s16

    Unknown encoder ‘aac’

    Everything else is installed and worked fine. And YES I installed sudo port install ffmpeg +a52 +faac +faad +gpl +lame +libogg +postproc +theora +vorbis +x264 +xvid this like you said with “+faad” and “+faac” … but the Error still is Unknown encoder ‘aac’

    Are you doing it manually?

  3. unfixablecms Says:

    Yap. If i use the “*.app” it says it cant find executeable called “mkvinfo” but if I go to Terminal and there I can start mkvinfo and its working. Strange thing isn’t it?

  4. Odd Man Out Says:

    I know of three alternatives for ffmpeg.

    – aac
    – faac
    – libfaac

    I think it’s the last one that’s used in the current build.

    As I said in my other post, I change the functions used for running ffmpeg, etc. So, things might work for you now. Give’r a try.
