134@section libilbc
135
136iLBC is a narrowband speech codec that has been made freely available
137by Google as part of the WebRTC project. libilbc is a packaging friendly
138copy of the iLBC codec. Libav can make use of the libilbc library for
139iLBC encoding and decoding.
140
141Go to @url{https://github.com/dekkers/libilbc} and follow the instructions for
142installing the library. Then pass @code{--enable-libilbc} to configure to
143enable it.

145@section AviSynth
146
147Libav can read AviSynth scripts as input. To enable support you need a
11881196
SH
148suitable @file{avisynth_c.h} header to compile against. The header as
149provided by AviSynth+ is fully compatible. AviSynth 2.5 is not supported
150by Libav. Once you have the appropriate header, pass
151@code{--enable-avisynth} to configure to enable AviSynth support.
908836e2
SH
152
153For Windows, supported AviSynth variants are
7a5f4447
SH
154@url{http://avisynth.nl, AviSynth 2.6 RC1 or higher} for 32-bit builds and
155@url{http://avs-plus.net, AviSynth+ r1718 or higher} for 32-bit and 64-bit builds.
11881196
SH
156@url{https://github.com/AviSynth/AviSynthPlus, AviSynth+'s git repository}
157provides a GNU-style Makefile which can install just the headers using
158@code{make install PREFIX=/install/prefix}.
159
160@float NOTE
161When using AviSynth+'s installed headers, the user must also pass
162the avisynth/ include directory to @code{--extra-cflags}. For example,
163if the PREFIX given to AviSynth+'s Makefile was /usr/i686-w64-mingw32,
164then the correct command would be
165@code{--extra-cflags="-I/usr/i686-w64-mingw32/include/avisynth"}.
166@end float
908836e2
SH
167
168For Linux and OS X, the supported AviSynth variant is
169@url{https://github.com/avxsynth/avxsynth, AvxSynth}.
170@file{avxsynth_c.h} is installed as part of the normal
171build routine, as illustrated on
172@url{https://github.com/avxsynth/avxsynth/wiki/System-Setup, AvxSynth's wiki}.
173(the instructions for compiling its prerequisites are outdated, as FFMS 2.18
174or higher is now needed; the list of dependencies to be downloaded from the
175repositories is still the same, though).
0b175caa 176
908836e2
SH
177@float NOTE
178AviSynth and AvxSynth are loaded dynamically. Distributors can build Libav
179with @code{--enable-avisynth}, and the binaries will work regardless of the
180end user having AviSynth or AvxSynth installed - they'll only need to be
181installed to use AviSynth scripts (obviously).

184@section Intel QuickSync Video
185
186Libav can use Intel QuickSync Video (QSV) for accelerated encoding and decoding
187of multiple codecs. To use QSV, Libav must be linked against the @code{libmfx}
188dispatcher, which loads the actual decoding libraries.
189
190The dispatcher is open source and can be downloaded from
191@url{https://github.com/lu-zero/mfx_dispatch.git}. Libav needs to be configured
192with the @code{--enable-libmfx} option and @code{pkg-config} needs to be able to
193locate the dispatcher's @code{.pc} files.
