Fedora Linux converting to AAC fails - no library

Post by stevenfalco »

I am trying to rip the main title from The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary BD, while converting audio to AAC using the AAC-stereo profile.

I get the error "LIBMKV_TRACE: encoder 'libfdk_aac' not found in ffmpeg/libavcodec library"

On my system, I apparently have two libfdk_aac libraries:

/usr/lib64/libfdk-aac.so.2.0.0
/usr/lib64/fdk-aac/libfdk-aac.so.2.0.2

I noticed that the error message has an underscore (libfdk_aac) while the library has a dash (libfdk-aac). Is that why it is not found? And if so, how would I correct it? Or is it a problem with ffmpeg?

BTW, this title has DTS-HD MA Surround 5.1 audio.

This is my first posting on this forum - if more info is needed please let me know what to provide.

You have to compile libfdk separately; it has licensing that allows source-only distribution.
