It's taken me a month of Sundays (Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays) but finally got a FULL set of fully feature enabled 4.0.2 ffmpeg and tools (ffplay, ffprobe etc.) built for Windows 32/64bit from the latest (4.0.2) source.

Some of those who have used the NewTek ffmpeg build (shipped with SDK 3.5) will notice that 99% of the other devices, codecs and plugins have been disabled in their build. Let alone the fact that all of the tools like ffplay are just missing). You will probably be also aware (as I became) that nobody else is preparing Windows binaries that include the NDI support. For example using the Newtek build you can't suck in an NDI feed and h.264 encode it using the hardware encoders on Gforce or Quadro cards (you can use encode it using the 'software' x.264 encoder), but that's no good if you require to offload encoding to save CPU resources.

Now because of the of the odd miss-mash of licencing of various components (MIT, GPL-2, GPL-3, Nvidia, Blackmagic, Franahoff etc.) I don't think I can legally distribute the windows binaries of my build, but happy to share with friends - I am open to making new friends. :)

This build has EVERY option, codec, device and plug in I can find, and is really designed for protyping, rather than production, however I may be able to help build custom ffmpegs, if you need one optimised.

Just let me know if you would like to 'test' my binaries, I could do with some feedback.

All The Best

Keith

update: been using this to h.264 encode and rtmp stream eight simultaneous streams out of vMix. What is great is I can encode directly from the 4 x vMix NDI outputs. By setting up the overlays I can now broadcast the same production but with different 'branding' graphics to each distribution platform.

Things I have tried so far....

Decklink HD-SDI input to NDI
NDI to Decklink HD-SDI output
NDI to rtmp h.264 encoded web stream using NVENC (Quadro / Geforce)
rtmp to NDI using NVDEC (Quadro / GeForce)
Decklink HD-SDI to h.264 encoded web stream using NVENC (Quadro / Geforce)
rtmp to Decklink HD-SDI using NVDEC (Quadro / GeForce)
Logitech BRIO webcam 4K to NDI (only tested to 1080p60)
Logitech C920 webcam to NDI (Only tested to 1080p30)

NDI to 8 x simultaneous h.264 encode and RTMP stream at multiple resolutions, frame rates and bit rates from 360p25 thru to 1080p50 using Quadro K2000 video card ($100 on ebay).

Great job I intended to do but never did! The Newtek version was enough for what I wanted to do but a full version is a very nice tool to have...

I'm very much interested if you still want to share. I'd be happy to test it and report feedback.

Congrats!

Hi Keith,

I'm very interested in your complete build if this is something that you're still willing to share!

Thanks,

Murray

Greetings Keith

If you still have this I'd be very interested.

Do you have information on what you did to build it?

Trying to understand the instructions on ffmpeg windows builds seems really difficult (it clearly assumes knowledge that I don't have!)

Thanks

Phil
