FFmpeg 2.8.3

  • By
  • Chris Ballinger


FFmpeg static libraries compiled for armv7, armv7s and x86_64 for use in iOS development.


Just drag the /dependencies/include and /dependencies/lib folders into your Xcode project and add them to your build target. If you want to, you can modify the build-ffmpeg.sh script to suit your needs and recompile.


This most recent version has been tested with FFmpeg version 2.1.1 and version 7.0 of the iOS SDK.


  1. Make sure you have the latest version of gas-preprocessor.pl installed into your PATH or you'll get some nasty linker errors.
  2. Check build-ffmpeg.sh to see if VERSION="X.X.X" is your desired FFmpeg version and SDKVERSION="Y.Y" matches your current iOS SDK version.
  3. To build normally: $ bash build-ffmpeg.sh
  4. To build for debugging: $ DEBUG=true bash build-ffmpeg.sh


FFmpeg is LGPLv2.1+ depending on how you compile it. This may affect your ability to distribute binaries on the App Store, especially if you don't release your source code to allow someone to re-link against newer versions of FFmpeg. Beware!
