ffmpeg installation failing

Postby jerry4all » 25. September 2012 13:55

I'm trying to install ffmpeg on xampp (v.1.7.7). I followed all these instructions I found in a forum...

unzip
copy ffmpeg.exe somewhere and remember the path for later use
move php_ffmpeg.dll to php extension dir (usually c:\xampp\php\ext)
move all other files to Windows\System32 (except COPYING.GPLv3.txt, readme.txt)
add extension=php_ffmpeg.dll to php.ini (usually c:\xampp\php\php.ini)
restart apache with fingers crossed
questions/answers http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=41913
If you are using windows 64bit, you will also need to to copy all of those dll files to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 along with C:\Windows\System32.

But my apache service 'runs' and 'stops' when I add the extesion to the php.ini file.

Any help will be well appreciated

What's in the Apache Error log might be very useful

Also check in the Windows Event Viewer Logs - Application and System for App Crashes.

Good Luck

checked the error log and this is all I saw...


[Wed Sep 26 09:21:12 2012] [warn] pid file C:/xampp/apache/logs/httpd.pid overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?
[Wed Sep 26 09:21:12 2012] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Wed Sep 26 09:21:12 2012] [notice] Digest: done

nothing seemingly useful....

Well , what about those Windows Event Logs?

How do you know the service is stopped?

Let me point out that if Apache crashed, it might not be able to write to its Error Log, all you would get in an unclean shutdown. :idea:

Good Luck
:)
