Installation on MacOS is simple for users with homebrew installed. Homebrew is the package manager – users always wanted but yet to have natively. Think of it as an equivalent to apt-get on linux. The installation command is as follows:
$ brew install ffmpeg
As of March 25th, 2020, MacOS + homebrew install has disabled native dependencies support. If additional libraries are required for an FFMPEG build, installing all the extra configurations can be accomplished with this script:
brew uninstall --force --ignore-dependencies ffmpeg brew install chromaprint amiaopensource/amiaos/decklinksdk brew tap homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg brew install ffmpeg brew upgrade homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg $(brew options homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg | grep -vE '\s' | grep -- '--with-' | grep -vi chromaprint | tr '\n' ' ')
Luckily, thanks to a discussion on github the current work around is the best we have.
