FFmpeg installing in LINUX Ubuntu 9.10...

If you are a linu distribution user such as Ubuntu and Kubuntu you may have the need to convert media files.....  In this case FFmpeg makes the big deal. It can convert all the types of media in just seconds. It's the best media convertion software for linux ditribution. To install and get the advantage of it STICK ON TO THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS....

1) Open your gnome-terminal or konsole

2) For deactivating previous settings that made by user...

   sudo apt-get remove ffmpeg x264 libx264-dev

3) To get the dependencies and system stuff...

   sudo apt-get update
   sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion git-core checkinstall yasm texi2html libfaac-dev libfaad-dev libmp3lame-dev libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libsdl1.2-dev libx11-dev libxfixes-dev libxvidcore4-dev zlib1g-dev

4) To get x264 and installin it...

   git clone git://
   cd x264
   sudo checkinstall --pkgname=x264 --pkgversion "1:0.svn`date +%Y%m%d`+`git rev-list HEAD -n 1 | head -c 7`" --backup=no --default

5) To get FFmpeg....

   svn checkout svn:// ffmpeg
   cd ffmpeg
   ./configure --enable-gpl --enable-version3 --enable-nonfree --enable-postproc --enable-pthreads --enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libtheora --enable-libx264 --enable-libxvid --enable-x11grab
   sudo checkinstall --pkgname=ffmpeg --pkgversion "4:0.5+svn`date +%Y%m%d`" --backup=no --default
   hash ffmpeg

6) Now it's all done .. Now you can do your convertions via terminal codes.. I wish to publish them also in the near future.. If you are not k with the terminal enter following code in terminal. It's a user friendly GUI for FFmpeg... Try it..

sudo apt-get install winff
