I'm new to Ubuntu. Based in Allston. Has anyone successfully installed ffmpeg on their computer? If so, would you help me figure out how to do it on mine?
$ sudo aptitude install ffmpeg
IIRC ffmpeg in the official Ubuntu repositories isn't built with support for all codecs due to some licensing issues.
If the official version of ffmpeg is unsuitable for your use, there are guides on how to build it from source.
Feel free to respond with questions if you're unsure how to proceed.
my wife and i live in the North End and we both use Ubuntu. =)
i hope to be more involved in any LoCo activities in the future. i'm no technical wizard, just a hobbyist, but i love Ubuntu! =)
