Thank you for your reply!

I will try to build an updated ffmpeg with the additional codecs; can you pls point me to an updated tutorial on how to do it? Also, The target ffmpeg is for the Raspberry PI, can I build the ffmpeg on a stronger linux machine (such as AWS machine)?

Is there anything else I need to take into account when building it for the RPI?

Thanks again for your support!
