How to Solve MacOS ffmpeg killed Error

tags: MacOS Debug Tips


Recently, I wanted to download the live playback course in nailing with the tried and true method, but some errors suddenly appeared when executing ffmpeg on the command line:

[1]    40344 killed     ffmpeg



This problem can be solved by compiling and installing from the source code through the following command

brew tap homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg
brew install homebrew-ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg

At this time, enter ffmpeg in the terminal to get:
