Citra crashes when opened after update

Issue: Citra crashes when I open it after a recent update.

Hi. Do you know why brew is necessary now and not before the previous versions of citra for mac?. I have the same problem that Isaac_venx with the new update.

Brew is just a package manager to install software on your mac, what citra actually requires is the library ffmpeg.

Thank you so much it worked
