FFmpeg 4.2.2 lacking x264 build info

I download the windows version from here

Was curious to what version of x264 was included. I started an encoding using dmMediaConverter. Got this...

Anyone know why?

Seems to be the same, no x264 build info, for the nightly builds going back some time.

Yes, thank you.

Seems to be the current build, r2991, but x264 info was not included when it was built for FFmpeg. Odd thats it's not there for a Stable release and I like to see the build info when I look at a file with MediaInfo

Revision is only included if built from git. Builds from any other source, like a tar.gz dump or a devel lib from a repo, won't have that info.

Yes, I know... Just odd that it's not there for a Stable release.

"core 159" really tells you all you need to know. Any relevant changes have that number increased.
But as others have said, the full revision info is only available if its built from Git - if someone builds it in any other way, that info simply cannot be determined.

Yes, like I said, I understand how it's not there but not why... I just find it odd that it was forgotten in a "Stable" release... nightly's sure, but not a stable release.

The nightly's for some time didn't include the info, seem that that build was used. Oh well.
