Dynamic Media and FFMpeg

Avatar

Level 3

We have configured Dynamic Media for Videos and Images by adding the cloud configuration and setting up the Dynamic Media Replication Agent.  We are getting errors in our logs about FFmpeg(com.day.cq.dam.video.FFMpegTranscodeProcess Could not find ffmpeg's executable).  There are steps in the out of the box DAM Update Asset workflow that use this.  Do we need to install FFmpeg?

I also ran across this help documentation: http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/administer/content/assets/video-transcoder.html that has you update the DAM Update Asset Workflow, install cq-s7dam-video-core-1.0.jar, etc.  Should these steps be followed if you are using Dynamic Media or is the out of the box DAM Update Asset workflow sufficient?

Hi,

in the page you referenced the list of steps is as below, which suggests you do need to install FFMpeg and update the OOTB update asset workflow

Regards,

Opkar

To use the pluggable Dynamic Media video transcoder, video thumbnail, and delivery service based on FFmpeg, involves four tasks:

  1. Download and install FFmpeg.
  2. Install cq-s7dam-video-core-1.0.jar.
  3. Set up the new video services through CQ Workflow.
    • Set up the Dynamic Media FFmpeg thumbnailing service.
    • Set up the Dynamic Media FFmpeg transcoding service.
    • Set up the Dynamic Media FFmpeg network file copy service
