    Can't Install ffmpeg

    I want to use ffmpeg, but when I try to use "apt-get install ffmpeg" I get this as a result:

    Code:

    Building dependency tree...
    Reading state information...
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    E: Broken packages
    I tried looking it up, but I can't find any solutions. I've never really had broken package errors, so I don't know how to deal with them.

    I also tried installing it via Synaptic but that didn't work either.

    In Synaptic, click menus Edit, Fix Broken Packages.

    If you can't get ffmpeg to install, you could try using avconv instead. In fact, ffmpeg is deprecated (when you run it, it gives the warning "This program is only provided for compatibility and will be removed in a future release. Please use avconv instead.").

    You can install avconv by running:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libav-tools

    If you want ffmpeg, make sure you get all the codecs that you'll need.

    You can install avconv by running:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libav-tools
    Code:
    Package libav-tools is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package libav-tools has no installation candidate

    Should mention what release of Ubuntu you are on, seems like lucid (10.04

    open up Software Sources, (software-properties-gtk), make sure that under the 'Updates' tab that the 1st 2 are enabled, (security & updates
    Then reload the sources & or run
    sudo apt-get update
