#1256 closed task

private ffmpeg libraries for debian — at Version 1

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Smo
Priority: major Milestone: 1.0
Component: packaging Version: trunk
Keywords: debian ffmpeg Cc:

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Let's do the same as what #613 did for RPM: ship an ffmpeg-xpra package with the same version of ffmpeg we support everywhere else.
This will remove the need for patches and all the complications associated with that and will allow us to support most distro versions with just one version of the source.

Related to #1242 (ffmpeg 3.1 API change)

Description: modified (diff)
Owner: changed from Antoine Martin to Smo

Done in r13010 + r13012 with some related work in r13008 + r13011.
I've built some beta packages with those changes.

The ffmpeg packaging files could be improved to download the source for the specific version being built rather than relying on it being there already (which could make us build the wrong version...) but this will have to do for now.

@smo: over to you, you will need to build and install ffmpeg-xpra on your Debian / Ubuntu build systems.
