LoadError: InitError: could not load library "avcodec-58.dll" (Windows 10)

As of today I haven’t been able to precompile any package that requires FFMPEG.jl, getting this error:

ERROR: LoadError: InitError: could not load library "C:\Users\aresf\.julia\artifacts\7350a6401f1c0d38cc3518193083bc4f83adfe99\bin/avcodec-58.dll"

FFMPEG is installed and pointed to in the PATH variable. Any clues?

(Btw I noticed that the path \bin/avcodec-58.dll" is written wrong for Windows. In case that’s the problem, where could I find the file that may be hardcoding the " / "?)

Thanks!!

I’m getting a similar error.

I’m aware of the issue, a fix will hopefully come soon™

@afishy However it would be great if you could run these commands right after you get the error above and post here the output

Just ran into the same. Here is what DependencyWalker gives:

It is exactly this right after error.

In my case, apparently, all packages are working OK in Atom. However, the Julia kernel in the Jupyter environment is not working properly. Despite having and (seeing) the kernel for Julia 1.5.2 installed, I get a funny message:

In the end, I can have work done with Julia in Jupyter; the problem is that LaTeX markdown loses its formatting and the kernel works extremely slow.

I updated the registry, and definitely, the .dll file is not found:

Library(raw"C:\Users\manue\.julia\artifacts\7350a6401f1c0d38cc3518193083bc4f83

Thanks

There is a newline break in your call, you should do

Library(raw"C:\Users\manue\.julia\artifacts\7350a6401f1c0d38cc3518193083bc4f83adfe99\bin/avcodec-58.dll")

but anyway this function will not solve any issue, it’s only a debugging tool.

Are you sure you have update the registry? However your issue appears totally unrelated to the one discussed above in this thread, I’d recommend you opening a new topic.

Thanks a lot for the speedy reply. Sorry for the line break; it’s the copy+past thing…

Yes I updated the registry

((@v1.5) pkg> up
   Updating registry at `C:\Users\manue\.julia\registries\General`       
No Changes to `C:\Users\manue\.julia\environments\v1.5\Project.toml`

And I also did as you suggested:

No Changes to `C:\Users\manue\.julia\environments\v1.5\Project.toml`
No Changes to `C:\Users\manue\.julia\environments\v1.5\Manifest.toml`

Can this problem be, somehow, related to Windows 10? I installed yesterday Julia 1.5.2 in a NEW computer (Windows 10), and I got this problem. Funny, three of my students also installed last week Julia 1.5.2 on Windows 10 machines … and no problem. In their case, everything works perfectly well

Thanks

As I said above, I don’t see how your issue is related to the one discussed in this thread. Please open a new one and discuss it there.

I see a lot of SYSTEM32 in that box, but my system is a Windows 10, 64-bits. Do not know if this is relevant or not.

OK, thanks.

Hi, I also got the exact same error on a new install (Windows 10, Julia 1.5.2). Turned out my system was a Windows N version (without video codecs installed by default).
Installing the media feature pack solved the issue.
It might be helpful to put a warning in the Readme if this can be reproduced.
