I have spent about 90 minutes today trying to download a video from youtube and extract its audio.
At first I had issues with not having
ffmpeg installed. Apparently it is no longer possible to install via
dnf, and I cannot get RPM to work for anything (rpm -l shows nothing, despite having enabled both free and nonfree repositories). I then installed the source files and compiled them. None of the --enable-lib switches worked, so the only audio formats I could use
youtube-dl on were m4a and aac. Neither of them could I play since I did not have the codecs. My question is:
How can I get
ffmpeg to work with other codecs, when it does not want to enable anything via options in configure, or is there another way to install these codecs that actually works with Fedora 25 and
I have looked at nearly every set of instructions for this or similar question, and they have been invariably been lacking in some way.
