    FFmpeg's source code is maintained using a version control system called git. The git master builds are built from the master branch of the repository, which is where all development occurs whereas the release builds are built from the latest release branch. These are essentially a snapshot of the master branch at a given point of time. They are updated with bug and security fixes for a while but no new features. It is highly recommended to choose a git master build; unlike many software, releases are primarily made for the convenience of OS distributors and package managers and don't signify greater stability or maturity.

    You should ask if you have to create your own compression or if you can use something like FFmpeg or HandBrake. In the later case you can create C bindings or wrapper for these command line programs, and just pick a codec for each media type but be careful because some of them is protected by patents and depending in how you use them the company might have to pay for them.

  • Building More Than Just a YouTube Video Downloader
    6 projects | dev.to | 7 Nov 2021
    However, there's a catch: most of the time, the highest quality video doesn't have audio. That's just how YouTube seems to work, with the audio and video separate. So in order to download the highest quality video (with audio), they'll have to be downloaded separately. In many cases, you'd want to combine the two into one file so you have the highest quality video and audio. ffmpeg is one way to do that. But in my case, I can simply play both the audio and video at the same time and it will work!
