Installing FFMPEG library on Linux Mint via PPA

FFmpeg is 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 audio-video 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 Flacon to 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-media
sudo apt-get update
sudo 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 Manager as usual.

Good Luck!!!

Best place to execute FFmpeg online for you. Supporting all FFmpeg feature with output file and console log, no need to install.
