View Full Version : [ubuntu] ffmpeg installation on Ubuntu 8.04

June 21st, 2008, 10:15 AM
Hi I tried to install ffmpeg from synaptic manager it works but it does not set --enable liblame so there is no sound after I encode the video. How do I do this from installing by source. I've already installed ffmpeg previously in ubuntu 7 and it works fine however upon upgrading to ubuntu 8.04 it produced an error in libavcode.so can't expalin why. Could someone help me so that I can install ffmpeg properly? Thanks

Maybe this could help you:


It tells you how to make it compile with all the stuff that could be illegal in you country.

So please check with your local authorities first :)

Make Medibuntu your repository and install all the codecs:
Run also:
sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras

If you don't want to use a third-party repository such as Medibuntu, then you can compile it yourself:
