Platform-specific build instructions


On Fedora, build dependencies can be installed via:

sudo dnf install cmake make qt5-qtmultimedia-devel qt5-qtsvg-devel qt5-qtbase-gui ffmpeg-devel opus-devel openssl-devel python3-protobuf protobuf-c protobuf-devel qt5-rpm-macros SDL2-devel libevdev-devel systemd-devel

Then, Chiaki builds just like any other CMake project:

git submodule update --init
mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..

In order to utilize hardware decoding, necessary VA-API component needs to be installed separately depending on your GPU. For example on Fedora:

  • Intel: libva-intel-driver(majority laptop and desktop) OR libva-intel-hybrid-driver(most netbook with Atom processor)
  • AMD: Already part of default installation
  • Nvidia: libva-vdpau-driver


Windows support is reduced to the absolute minimum for maintainability. Official Windows builds are done on AppVeyor within MSYS2 using this script, which can also work as a template for building locally: scripts/ Other methods of building may work, but will not be officially supported.
