I give up. I've looked at this thread after you suggested it on one of mine, and it just refuses to work. I accept I've got a really limited understanding of all things ubuntu but I feel like I'm banging my head against a brick wall. I used your command
and was told that
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
I'm sorry If this sounds like a really dum question but I'm really really stuck.

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.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies.
ffmpeg: Depends: libavcodec1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libavformat1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libavutil1d (>= 0.cvs20070307) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.7-1) but 2.5-0ubuntu14 is to be installed
Depends: libfreetype6 (>= 2.3.5) but 2.2.1-5ubuntu1 is to be installed
