Hi Chao,

Could you please let me know which version of Engine you are using? You can find this inside Maya under Houdini Engine>Preferences…

FFmpeg Problem Oct. 7, 2019, 9:42 a.m.

Not that I'm aware of. If you're not comfortable compiling your own copy, and you're not shy of utilizing 3rd party package repositories, you could install a pre-built version.

This is how I installed it on my machine:

*uninstall current version*
sudo yum install epel-release
sudo rpm -v --import http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro
sudo rpm -Uvh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm
sudo yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel

Note: This uses a 3rd party repository, Nux Desktop. It is well known, but neither I or SideFX have looked into the safety of these packages.
