Re: ffmpeg ERROR: audio conversion failed: Unknown encoder 'libmp3la

Works here. Do you have ffmpeg installed? ffmpeg is an optional dependency for youtube-dl, but it may be required for what you're trying to do.

If ffmpeg is installed, and if the issue is still there, then show the complete output of the "ffmpeg" command.

Re: ffmpeg ERROR: audio conversion failed: Unknown encoder 'libmp3la

If you are trying to dump the audio from a youtube video with ffmpeg, and encode it to .mp3, troubleshoot what isn't working the way you wish.

Start by seeing if youtube-dl is working.
You can get the formats the video is available in with:

youtube-dl -F http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456789

You can usually get audio only using

youtube-dl -f 140 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456789

That will be .aac or .m4a audio
You can leave it like that or to reencode to .mp3

Check if ffmpeg is working.

ffmpeg -i file.m4a -c:a libmp3lame -b:a 128k Oufile.mp3

Or if you have a video file that you want to dump the audio from into .mp3

ffmpeg -i file.mp4 -vn -c:a libmp3lame -b:a 128k Outfile.mp3

If you get an error about lame then check if lame is installed

pacman -Ss lame

Post if ffmpeg works ok for you.

What is that version?  Did you build your own ffmpeg?  Perhaps it needs a rebuild against the new libs.  Here's mine from the repos:

ffmpeg version 2.4.2 Copyright (c) 2000-2014 the FFmpeg developers
  built on Oct 15 2014 10:59:16 with gcc 4.9.1 (GCC) 20140903 (prerelease)

And, FWIW, I just tried the same commands on the same video that just failed for you - it worked fine for me.

Re: ffmpeg ERROR: audio conversion failed: Unknown encoder 'libmp3la

Why are you using ffmpeg packages from AUR? Also I don't think any of the AUR package provide ffmpeg with a blank configure. ffmpeg from extra is kept up-to-date, more so than any other distro, and should suffice for the vast majority of users. If you must make changes, use ABS instead.

Your first ffmpeg output has been configured with no configure options, but you need --enable-libmp3lame to encode MP3 audio (libshine is a fixed-point encoder, such as for some ARM architecture I guess, and libtwolame is a MP2 audio encoder).

Your second ffmpeg output shown in this thread may work, but again, why not just use ffmpeg from extra?
