#1751 assigned task

deb: switch back to system libraries for ffmpeg on newer distros

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 2.3
Component: packaging Version: 2.2.x
Keywords: Cc:


Newer Debian / Ubuntu distros provide ffmpeg libraries that are recent enough for us to use:

We should deprecate our private package (#1256) for those distros and ensure we build against the system version.
This may require using Conflicts and Replaces tags to ensure the package is not installed.

Done for "bionic" in r18106.


  • test install with bionic alpha
  • test upgrade with artful

r18222: buster should now upgrade and remove the old ffmpeg-xpra

Let's not deal with stretch and artful, leaving it to the distro upgrade to make the transition to the new dependencies.
