Hi , does mythbuntu come with a version of ffmpeg that supports flash?

I've been trying to setup on the fly flash encoding
using my standard ubuntu feisty mythbackend installation.I think the problems I have are becuase the ffmpeg with feisty doesn't support flash (swf) encoding.

Your best bet is to enable medibuntu (See mythbuntu control centre's codecs tab). From there you can activate their build of flash.

Thanks for the advice , but no joy.

From aptitude:
ffmpeg - multimedia player, server and encoder - Medibuntu package

This package contains the ffplay multimedia player, the ffserver streaming server and the ffmpeg audio and video encoder. They support most existing file
formats (AVI, MPEG, OGG, Matroska, ASF...) and encoding formats (MPEG, DivX, MPEG4, AC3, DV...).

This package is built with the "risky" option, to enable mp3/mp4/h264/amr support. Therefore, it is in Medibuntu as it might violate patents.

This package isn't supported by Ubuntu: DON'T REPORT BUGS TO UBUNTU!

Does anyone know any other repositories where ffmpeg with swf / flash are enabled?
