Installing FFMPEG library on Linux Mint via PPA

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!!!
