Topic: PHP 8.1 and imageavif

Hey Remy!
I came across your answer about the imageavif function in PHP 8.1: … n-disabled
I have the following config:
PHP 8.1.6 (cli) (built: May 11 2022 01:14:18) (NTS gcc x86_64)

I tried to install php81-php-pecl-vips, vips-heif and libheif from the rpmfusion repository - installed without errors:

But the function imageavif() that didn't work:

# php -i | grep AVIF
AVIF Support => enabled
# php -r 'var_dump(gd_info());'
array(15) {
  ["GD Version"]=>
  string(5) "2.3.3"
  ["AVIF Support"]=>

# php -r 'var_dump(imageavif(imagecreatetruecolor(8, 8), "/tmp/test"));'
PHP Warning: imageavif(): AVIF image support has been disabled
 in Command line code on line 1

Can you tell me what else can be done? Or do I still need to somehow install libavif and libavif-devel?

Re: PHP 8.1 and imageavif

vips and imagick are different extensions, so with different API

- vips =>
- imagick =>

Notice: if you want modern feature, on modern PHP (8.1), I recommend you use a modern distro (EL-8 of even EL-9), not using a 8 years old EL-7 which is close to its EOL (in 2 years)

P.S. libavif have too much missing dependencies to be added and maintained in my repository, so waiting for it in EPEL
