Unable to compile under Debian Testing

Post by Kavey » Fri Apr 06, 2018 10:54 pm

Description of problem or question:
I'm running Debian Testing and recently I am not able to compile Handbrake from source.

I'm sure this is due to a change that was made upstream for encx264 but I have no idea how to get this working again with Handbrake.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Run through the instructions to compile

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Debian Testing
$ uname -a
Linux kavern 4.15.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.15.11-1 (2018-03-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Code: Select all

In file included from ../libhb/encx264.h:14:0,
                 from ../libhb/encx264.c:14:

Try with git master head or the recently released 1.1.0. Both are significantly newer.

Thanks. I did manage to get it compiled using the source from github. I think 1.0.7 was still the released version at the time and I am just not as familiar with git as I probably should be. I tend to stick with packages that are available unless there's a specific need to build from source (in this case the Debian packages don't handle Blu-ray subtitles correctly) and even then I tend to stick with the stable releases.
