Question about dll, libs and ffmpeg
#1
Hey, I would like to clear a few things up,

1. Some libraries like libbluray, xml2 and freetype have included, *.libs and *.dll. if I understand it correctly dlls are dynamic libraries while .libs are compiled along with Kodi.

Question, do libs point do .dlls? Do I need to update both? If I update a .dll and keep using the lib from previous versions and just update the includes and dlls? Why have both?

2. When compiling Kodi it downloads FFmpeg 4.0.4 for Leia 18.3.
I've found a branch of FFmpeg in Kodi's GitHub that is being updated regularly for version 4.2.
Is this the latest FFmpeg I can find made for Kodi?

Is this one the latest?

.lib files are import libraries that are needed to build -> so yes you need to update both.
And yes, the mentioned github repo is the ffmpeg version we use in kodi.
