Installing FFMPEG library on Linux Mint via PPA

Installing FFMPEG library on Linux Mint via PPA

FFmpegis a cross – platform open-source library for processing video and audio filesMany have already noticed that in Linux Mint 17/17.1 there is no set of free FFmpeg libraries that allow you to record, convert audiovideo recordings in various formats, etc., We will try to correct this situation and install the FFmpeg library from PPA repository.

If you convert audio or video files you will need FFmpeg library. For example, when I installed the program Flaconto work with flac files, the software required to install FFmpeg.
Now I’ll show you how to install this library. It is very simple.

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

If the package is missing, add the repository and install again

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-mediasudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install ffmpeg

Do not forget from time to time to update the build FFmpeg to keep the library up to date. Just update your system through Update Manageras usual.

Good Luck!!!
