How to install ffmpeg on centos/rhel, The simple way!

Filed under
Howtos

I seen where a lot of server management companies are charging big bucks for this, so this might save you some time and money.

First

nano -w /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo

Insert

[dag]
name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el$releasever/en/$basearch/dag
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

Then yum update and search for ffmpeg and install all ffmpeg packages including devel.

Seems there is some lib problems along the way so in /etc/ld.so.conf

add

/usr/local/lib

then

ldconfig -v

To install the php extension follow the simple directions on http://ffmpeg-php.sourceforge.net/

Then you should be all set!

re: Problem Installing

Either install the GPG keys for DAG's repository (RPMforge) - see here.

Or disable gpgcheck (i.e. set to gpgcheck=0) - not recommended for security reasons.

ffmpeg-php doesn't work

Thank you for your Tip,
I could install ffmpeg but cannot configure ffmpeg-php ( after phpize )

Thanks

re: ffmpeg-php doesn't work

First, did you build ffmpeg as shared as the error asks? And if you just installed ffmpeg, try running ldconfig and see if that helps any.

still cannot

I just used yum install ffmpeg .
after adding dag to my rep.

try adding /usr/local/lib to

try adding /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf
then do ldconfig -v

if you install the ffmpeg from dag it should do fine.

/etc/ld.so.conf has the following

include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf
/usr/ofed/lib
/usr/local/lib

but getting the same result .

is there any ideas ?
is there an option to do something like
yum install ffmpeg with --enable-shared ?

Thanks

ahh, yum install

ahh, yum install ffmpeg-devel that will do it

  • Crowdsourcing the way to a more flexible strategic plan
    Trust the community. Opening a feedback platform to anyone on campus seems risky, but in hindsight I'd do it again in a heartbeat. The responses we received were very constructive; in fact, I rarely received negative and unproductive remarks. When people learned about our honest efforts at improving the community, they responded with kindness and support. By giving the community a voice—by really democratizing the effort—we achieved a surprising amount of campus-wide buy-in in a short period of time. Transparency is best. By keeping as many of our efforts as public as possible, we demonstrated that we were truly listening to our customers and understanding the effects of the outdated technology policies and decisions that were keeping them from doing their best work. I've always been a proponent of the idea that everyone is an agent of innovation; we just needed a tool that allowed everyone to make suggestions. Iterate, iterate, iterate. Crowdsourcing our first-year IT initiatives helped us create the most flexible and customer-centric plan we possibly could. The pressure to move quickly and lay down a comprehensive strategic plan is very real; however, by delaying that work and focusing on the evolving set of data flowing from our community, we were actually able to better demonstrate our commitment to our customers. That helped us build critical reputational capital, which paid off when we did eventually present a long-term strategic plan—because people already knew we could achieve results. It also helped us recruit strong allies and learn who we could trust to advance more complicated initiatives.
  • Reform is a DIY, modular, portable computer (work in progress)
    Want a fully functional laptop that works out of the box? There are plenty to choose from. Want a model that you can upgrade? That’s a bit tougher to find: some modern laptops don’t even let you replace the RAM. Then there’s the Reform. It’s a new DIY, modular laptop that’s designed to be easy to upgrade and modify. The CAD designs will even be available if you want to 3D print your own parts rather than buying a kit. You can’t buy a Reform computer yet. But developer Lukas Hartmann and designer Ana Dantes have developed a prototype and are soliciting feedback on the concept.
  • New neural network teaches itself Go, spanks the pros
    While artificial intelligence software has made huge strides recently, in many cases, it has only been automating things that humans already do well. If you want an AI to identify the Higgs boson in a spray of particles, for example, you have to train it on collisions that humans have already identified as containing a Higgs. If you want it to identify pictures of cats, you have to train it on a database of photos in which the cats have already been identified.

Server: MAAS, OPNFV, 'DevOps', and Docker

  • MAAS KVM Pods
    OpenStack is the dominant solution in the IaaS space, fueled by the need for reliable, scalable and interoperable private cloud infrastructure to accommodate cloud native applications. Through OpenStack’s open APIs, tenants can easily deploy elaborate virtual (overlay) networks, integrate with a variety of storage backends, even leverage modern hypervisor-like machine containers (LXD) for bare metal performance. Although the tooling allows a full fledged OpenStack deployment on just a single machine, the intrinsic efficiencies that OpenStack’s design promises, materialize at a certain scale — typically at least 12 servers.
