How to install MP4box on CentOS 6

MP4Box is a MP4 multiplexer. It can import MPEG-4 video, DivX, XviD, 3ivx, h264 etc, audio streams and subtitles into the .mp4 container. The end result is a compliant MP4 stream. It can also extract streams from a .mp4. MP4Box is a command line tool, but can be used with graphical user interfaces such as YAMB or my MP4box GUI.

First of all install the freeglut packages

yum -y install freeglut.x86_64  freeglut-devel.x86_64

NOTE: You will need gcc and gcc++ packages to manually compile below packages. You can easily install them on CentOS/RedHat using command yum install gcc gcc-c++ autoconf automake

Now download the gpac source packages and libraries.

cd /usr/local/src/
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gpac/gpac-0.4.5.tar.gz
wget http://nchc.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gpac/GPAC%20extra%20libs/GPAC%20extra%20libs%200.4.5/gpac_extra_libs-0.4.5.tar.gz
tar -zxvf gpac-0.4.5.tar.gz
tar -zxvf gpac_extra_libs-0.4.5.tar.gz

Copy the libraries to gpac folder.

cd gpac_extra_libs
cp -prf * /usr/local/src/gpac/extra_lib
cd ..
cd gpac

Now Install MP4Box

chmod 755 configure
make lib
make apps
make install lib
make install

No copy the gpac.so to system library

cp -prf bin/gcc/libgpac.so /usr/lib64

And it’s done.

[root@server ~]# which MP4Box

    Good advice, this is the first thing I’ve had to compile for linux in a many years. Don’t forget to tell noobs (and boneheads like me) they need GCC-C++ in order for to compile anything.
