biftool broken on Yosemite 10.10.5

Following the instructions in the readme of the SDK utilities folder, I have installed and selfupdated mac ports and successfully installed boost using port:

% sudo port install boost

I then added the biftool to the PATH as instructed and run the command:


I expect to get a usage message showing me what arguments to pass to biftool, but rather I get this error:

$ biftool
dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libboost_program_options.dylib
Referenced from: /Users/justinalcon/Downloads/RokuSDK/utilities/mac/bin/biftool
Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap: 5

Investigating the error message proves it to be true, those libraries do not exist, however, very similarly named libraries are loaded in that directory for example :

/opt/local/lib/libboost_program_options-mt.dylib DOES exist.

Simply moving the files with similar names to have the expected name does not fix the issues either FWIW. It seems that one of these programs is no longer compatible with the other one. Please advise, how to install biftool on mac yosemite 10.10.5.

Re: biftool broken on Yosemite 10.10.5

I found this alternative, it works well: ... bif-files/
which links to ...

The only dependency is having Python installed. I ran into an issue with the script, which was described here: ... -the-fstab

I got the script to run by using the python executable to run the file, instead of relying on the script itself:
$ python ./ blahblahblah.mp4 m -3
