If you installed FFmpeg while Audacity was running, or if you installed FFmpeg to a non-default location, Audacity will ask you to configure Preferences to locate the FFmpeg library.
To do this, access Preferences then the "Libraries" tab on the left: FFmpeg Library Version should now show a set of three version numbers for the sub-libraries of FFmpeg ("F" for libavformat version, "C" for libavcodec version and "U" for libavutil version).
Left-clicking pops up the download box for the Audacity installer or in Microsoft Edge starts the download at once (at this point you will be on the Foss Hub site where our downloads are hosted).
Save the download to your computer if prompted to do so.
Instead, use the instructions below to download and install the free and recommended third-party libraries for LAME and FFmpeg.
