Description tuantt13 2018-03-05 07:12:42 UTC
I'd like to report a minor mistake on the Downloads page which makes kdenlive 17.12.0 unable to recognize x264 codecs.
The current link points to "ffmpeg-20171217-387ee1d-win64-shared.zip". But the correct build for kdenlive to work is "ffmpeg-3.4.2-win64-shared.zip". I've spent a day to figure it out, so I think it'd be good to save others time by filing this.

I can also confirm this. It's linking to:

But that one doesn't work with kdenlive. In my case, I used the one that I had with Kdenlive-17.04.3, which was version: 3.2.4. With that version also worked.

Anyway, after finding this issue report, I also installed the version 3.4.2 mentioned by the original poster and it worked.

Please change the link. It really consumes a lot of time until you figure out that the version of ffmpeg is wrong.

Best regards

Please try with the actual Kdenlive version 18.08.2.

With the actual Windowds version the problem is solved as FFMPEG is part of the download. I closed this bug. If it still appears in the latest version, please feel free to re-open it and update the affected version number.
