How to install FFmpeg on Ubuntu05 Aug 2014
I had to dig around to find these simple instructions on how to install FFmpeg on Ubuntu. So I decided to write them down for future reference.
1) First, add Jon Severinsson’s official FFmpeg ppa to your sources. More details here:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg
2) Get the latest list of available software from all the sources (including the newly added ppa):
sudo apt-get update
3) Now go ahead and install:
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
That’s it. You should be all set!
