Andreas Rheinhardt 25e0e087c4 configure: Disable linker warnings for common symbols
Common symbols are not part of ISO-C and therefore not used
by FFmpeg at all. Yet linker warnings to ensure it stays
that way are nevertheless wrong, because the existence of
common symbols does not imply that there is a bug in our code.

More precisely, Clang's ASAN implementation uses a common symbol
___asan_globals_registered when used on Elf targets with
the -fsanitize-address-globals-dead-stripping option;
said option is the default since Clang 17 [1].
This leads to 1883 warnings about ___asan_globals_registered
when linking here.
(Even without that option there were warnings like
_ZN14__interception10real_vforkE being overridden.)

Said warning is also unnecessary: The proper way to ensure
that our code is free of common symbols is to let the compiler
enforce this. But this is already the default since GCC 10
and Clang 11, so there is no risk of introducing our own
common symbols.

FFmpeg is a collection of libraries and tools to process multimedia content such as audio, video, subtitles and related metadata.


  • libavcodec provides implementation of a wider range of codecs.
  • libavformat implements streaming protocols, container formats and basic I/O access.
  • libavutil includes hashers, decompressors and miscellaneous utility functions.
  • libavfilter provides means to alter decoded audio and video through a directed graph of connected filters.
  • libavdevice provides an abstraction to access capture and playback devices.
  • libswresample implements audio mixing and resampling routines.
  • libswscale implements color conversion and scaling routines.


  • ffmpeg is a command line toolbox to manipulate, convert and stream multimedia content.
  • ffplay is a minimalistic multimedia player.
  • ffprobe is a simple analysis tool to inspect multimedia content.
  • Additional small tools such as aviocat, ismindex and qt-faststart.


The offline documentation is available in the doc/ directory.

The online documentation is available in the main website and in the wiki.


Coding examples are available in the doc/examples directory.


FFmpeg codebase is mainly LGPL-licensed with optional components licensed under GPL. Please refer to the LICENSE file for detailed information.


Patches should be submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list using git format-patch or git send-email. Github pull requests should be avoided because they are not part of our review process and will be ignored.
