I have found a forum post with some information on disabling this.
I’ve re ./configure’d with --disable-ffmpeg_static and the make is proceeding at the moment, however I dont know what effect disabling that will have. All I want to use this for is with an IPTV service I use - instead of the Simple iptv client addon.
At this time it is '‘make’'ing - taking its time of course since its a raspi
sudo ./configure --disable-ffmpeg_static
then sudo make
and after a while it completed and now I’m running tvheadend - its now scanning my iptv url and seems to be going well, of course I still dont know the full impact of disabling ffmpeg_static… I’ll update this post should I come across a problem.
Not sure, but I suppose to keep it up with a more recent TVH version. In the recent months, we have seen a big effort to upgrade osmc to latest TVH version, on that time, 4.2.2. Thanks a lot for that. Since then two new versions have been deployed, 4.2.3 (1st July) and 4.2.4 this last one 12 days ago, (Releases · tvheadend/tvheadend · GitHub). TVH is updated frequently these months to patch the new SAT-IP functionality integrated in 4.2 branch, solving new bugs continuously.
Seeing your build scripts for osmc, it seems “quite straightforward” to build the latest release (without taking in account testing outcomes of course). Are you thinking to upgrade TvHeadend version in app store soon?
I tested 4.2.4 and it seems everything works ok. No issues for me upgrading it from previous version. My old configuration was also respected. In the meantime if anyone is interested to play with it, you can download it from the following link: TvheadEnd 4.2.4 OSMC
