Installing FFmpeg on VPS

by Baba

FFmpeg is a great solution to convert, record and stream Video & audio Files. the problem is that it takes lot on resource so not many Shared Hosting providers have FFmpeg installed.

The only good solution is that get a VPS and install FFmpeg, then you can start your own Youtube site 😉

Lets Start

Login to your VPS by SSH (use putty) through root account.

now you need to get the latest ffmpeg version give command :

svn checkout svn:// ffmpeg

If you find any error that Svn not found then first run command

yum install subversion

Once downloaded you need to compile it. Run the following commands:

cd ffmpeg

./configure –enable-shared


make install

now FFmpeg is installed. In my next post I will give information on installing FFmpeg-PHP
