ffmpeg – output buffer too small – solved

with one comment

Lame 3.98 is the problem.

Go to macports, search for lame, go to revision history and select the portfile for 3.97b2 (click on @16761).
Download the portfile clicking on Original Format (bottom of page).

Preferably, put the portfile in a folder. cd to the folder and run “sudo port install

Now port deactivate the 3.98 port and port activate the @3.97b2_0 one.

Now run the ffmpeg command and you should not get the output buffer small error.

(In my case, I was using ffmpeg to extract mp3 from flv. The mp3 was usable from iTunes but *not* from iPod shuffle).

  1. This helped me get the status bar, the player bar that you can scroll through to look at various parts of the .flv, to actually work.
