Currently there is one source of officially recognised static builds of FFmpeg for macOS – evermeet.cx <http://evermeet.cx/>.  Those builds have been reliable and never missed a beat.  Importantly, they also include FFprobe, FFplay and FFserver.  However, the evermeet maintainer has advised that they will never prepare builds specifically for Apple Silicon ARM [https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/apple-silicon-arm <https://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg/apple-silicon-arm>].

The current x86 builds do run on Apple Silicon by means of Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulation.  However, for various reasons, some users prefer not to use Rosetta 2 with its attendant overhead.  Those users thus have no officially recognised build of FFmpeg available.  At some time in the future, Apple will deprecate Rosetta 2 from which time x86 code will not run in macOS.

Do people know of Apple Silicon ARM static builds that can recognised on ffmpeg.org <http://ffmeog.org/> ?
