    Question Is FFmpeg working with 12.04?

    What is the latest? Did the ongoing dispute with avconv and FFmpeg get resloved?
    Used FFmpeg in the past. It worked great. Tried using it last night and get the message:
    *** THIS PROGRAM IS DEPRECATED ***
    This program is only provided for compatibility and will be removed in a future release. Please use avconv instead.
    Is there a simple way or fix now, to get FFmpeg working again?

    You can compile it yourself if you want to, to get the full working version as the repo one is a little less than full working version on some HD codecs, or you can install the repo version and it will still mostly work as you expect it to, but as avconv does just the same job with almost the same syntax (and I could never remember that when using ffmpeg, but had to look it up) I generally use avconv instead. It is less hard work compiling and messing about.

    Yeah tried Google and got lots of conflicting results, so didn't know what to do.
    Most said FFmpeg still works better than avconv.

    FFmpeg syntax was never a problem since I just copy & pasted it and the only changes needed were for the pic and mp3 code.
    You just put that code in, hit enter and FFmpeg did its thing beautifully.

    It just I never compiled it myself and was hoping someone had the proper code to make it work again.

    Re: Is FFmpeg working with 12.04?

    The "deprecated" message was made intentionally vague–the Debian/Ubuntu package maintainer is the Libav release maintainer–so general users often assume "ffmpeg" (the fake version in the repo from the fork) refers to FFmpeg (the project).

    If you want the real ffmpeg from FFmpeg, which I recommend since the fake version (and avconv) is old and buggy, then you have two major choices:

    Use a static build

    Simply download, extract, and run a pre-built binary of ffmpeg (note the ./ before ffmpeg):
    Code:
    wget http://ffmpeg.gusari.org/static/32bit/ffmpeg.static.32bit.$(date +"%F").tar.gz
    tar xzvf ffmpeg.static.32bit.$(date +"%F").tar.gz
    ./ffmpeg -i input ... output
    Compile ffmpeg
    Refer to a step-by-step guide to compile ffmpeg.

    Neither method will interfere with repository packages. The build is easier, but compiling will allow you to customize it anyway you want. There's no reason to let politics or a maintainer make choices for you.

    Am assuming you mean the static build here?

    So all needed is put in static build code in terminal
    wget http://ffmpeg.gusari.org/static/32bit/ffmpeg.static.32bit.$(date +"%F").tar.gz
    tar xzvf ffmpeg.static.32bit.$(date +"%F").tar.gz
    ./ffmpeg -i input ... output
    and I should be good to go?

    Yeah.

    That's the plan, and I wanted it to be as easy as possible, but results may vary due to time zones (due to the date command) and if the server is available. The first command downloads the most recent archive, the second command extracts the archive, and the third is an incomplete example of using ffmpeg.

    If it does not download for you then you can download via your browser at the FFmpeg Download page.

    FakeOutdoorsman, Thanks will give it a try when time permits.

    Well put in that static build code you suggested in post 4 and it doesn't work.
    Get the same *** THIS PROGRAM IS DEPRECATED *** message.

    I'm stumped......

    There is a ppa for ffmpeg which you can enable for the updated version of "proper" ffmpeg.

    OK think I did that.

    FFmpeg still won't work.
    Was the FFmpeg code changed?
    Tried using it and get this in terminal and know not what it means:
