    I'm guessing you found what you needed in the ffmpeg package. In the future if you're going to mark your thread 'Solved' please include the solution as a courtesy to others.

    Re: Problem with avconv install

    For anyone else looking, avconv is just one of this list of executables in the libav-tools package.

    /usr/bin/avconv
    /usr/bin/avplay
    /usr/bin/avprobe
    /usr/bin/avserver
    /usr/bin/ffmpeg
    /usr/bin/ffplay
    /usr/bin/ffprobe
    /usr/bin/ffserver
    /usr/bin/qt-faststart

    But as oldos2er said, it's a pity the OP didn't say so himself.

    These would be symlinks I imagine?
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
