Topic: Cannot install on MacOS 10.10.5


I'd like to run SVP on a late 2011 MacBook Pro 17", Quad-Core 3.5GHz i7 with a Radeon 6770M. I am running 10.10.5 and don't really want to update as it will break my Adobe CS 5 suite.

I am trying to install and getting the following errors:

[MacBook-Pro:~] htp% brew install --with-vapoursynth --with-bundle mpv
zimg: macOS El Capitan or newer is required.
vapoursynth: macOS El Capitan or newer is required.
Error: Unsatisfied requirements failed this build.
[MacBook-Pro:~] htp% 

Any advice? I'd be glad to pay for SVP if I can get this to work reasonably well with 720p/1080p MP4 videos with VLC.

Absolutely no chance with homebrew (right now).
There is a "bug" in zimg that makes it require a certain version of clang that is not provided for 10.10. No VS without zimg and no SVP without VS.
However, you probably can compile it by hand using the hints in the bug issue:
But... compiling mpv with VS (due to VS's python integration) is not exactly trivial.
You should instead ask the homebrew maintainers to come up with a workaround (e.g. the mentioned configure option) for systems older than El Capitan.

yeah, this's cool
