Nightly

Post by DrXenos »

Sorry if this was already addressed somewhere (I didn't see anything). Is the build server for your Windows nightly down? I see it haven't been built in a while.

Or is the code just not in a usable state right now? I built it myself last weekend, but it didn't behave very well (it would never finishes scanning).

The nightly I am currently using works fine, so I am not trying to be impatient or anything. Just curious...

Thanks,

DrX

Actually they came back, but the build server went offline again :(

If this goes on for too long, then we'll release builds manually until we can automate Windows nightlies again. Either way, please be patient :)

It's all builds, not just windows affected and I probably won't bother doing manual releases. Too much work.

It's not a guaranteed service. It'll get looked at when someone has time.

With the recent AAC encoder regression for political reasons, it's a great time to learn how to compile yourself so you can have a full-featured build.

Looks scary, but I'll give it a shot :)

I have no issue building it myself. I was just afraid you were in the middle of some big change and that I shouldn't use the latest yet. Now that I know it's just a server issue, I will just sync with GIT and build it.

Thanks.

I have no issue compiling the GUI part of handbrake, but I can't compile the libhb.dll, because of python errors:

After the ./configure --cross=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --enable-x265 --enable-qsv --enable-hwd --launch-jobs=1 --launch
I'm using the right version of mingw (gcc version 4.9.0 20131228 (experimental) (GCC)) on Ubuntu 14.04.
