exception: Input plugin 'ffmpeg' is unavailable: No protocol

Post by konan »

When I run mpd on Windows, an error occurs:

exception: Input plugin 'ffmpeg' is unavailable: No protocol


I think mpd cannot recognize ffmpeg.


ffmpeg is installed in local folder and the folder is added to PATH.


What should I do for this?

You don't need to install FFmpeg, because it's linked statically into mpd.exe. But I guess MPD's FFmpeg build needs more compile-time options - write a bug report on GitHub, and I'll check it out.
What will you need the FFmpeg input plugin for?
