[Libav-user] change in x265 library??

Yes, thanks for that.

Looking at the readme.txt at the x265 Bitbucket wiki I see it is dated December and mentions a specific build requirement for Yasm.
Given that the builds before this time were ok and the person doing these builds says he hasn’t changed his build process for a while I suspect that he is using an earlier version of Yasm and didn’t realize it needed to be upgraded.
I will find out if this is the case in a day or two.

BTW does the 
MacPorts install allow for the 10bit build of x265?

I assume it's not using video toolbox, for GPU or CPU assisted hardware encoding, but rather, using assembly optimizations targeting various CPU instruction sets. "noasm" means you're not getting any of those.)
