My system is 64-bits. The 32-bit should work the same as the 64-bit. I downloaded the 32-bit version selecting:

3.2.4
32-bit
static

I unzipped it and put the ffmpeg.exe file into the serviio/lib subfolder, restarted the serviio service and everything worked.

I, of course, assume that you are running the windows os. I am running windows 10.

Re: YouTube

Thanks. It's OK. I'm running this on a 32bit XP Pro, and it's still serviio 1.6.1 since I don't want it starting at every boot-up and I need to write code to only start/stop the service independently. I'll try the new ffmpeg again later and maybe the latest serviio if that fails. My Sony TV has a Youtube app that's not "too" bad, so it's not critical. Just annoying.

Re: YouTube

Thank you much for the information. The latest 32bit ffmpeg doesn't work at all with serviio 1.6. I may play with upgrading serviio at sometime, but since it'll require more than a simple installation, this version is "Good Enough." Aside from streaming local content with serviio, the only plugins i care about are Youtube, CBS and TuneIn. Youtube is working for the most part and the Sony has a Youtube App for when it doesn't. CBS works fine for "some" shows and no-one has any interest in figuring out it fails for the majority of CBS programs. TuneIn stations normally work after 4 or 5 attempts at getting a stream started.

It seams there is very little interest in serviio support anymore (at least for what I use it for), and upgrading is hardly worth the hassle unless the things "I" use it for are made to work better.

Thanks for all your trouble.

Thanks had the same problem. Noticed that youtube was not updating and "[FeedUpdaterWorker] Failed to retrieve online item information for" was appearing in the log for a whole lot of youtube content. Updated my ffmpeg to the latest version from Optware-ng and all is working again. Thanks for the hint.
