FFMPEG installation on a Dedicated Server-

To begin your program installation, choose SSH client of your choice login into your server with root password as received by you in mail.

Now, create a new text file with name “nano” (run "yum install nano" if text editor isn’t installed at present):

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

After opening your new file in “nano”, copy-paste the following:

[dag] name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux




Now, save the file using Ctrl+O and click Enter/Return to exit “nano”.

Also, you’ll need to install 'rpmforge' by running the following:

rpm -Uhv ... f.i386.rpm

After the package installation, execute the last command needed for the FFmpeg installation:

yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel

Additional 60 applications and libraries will be installed for audio/video manipulation as dependencies that’ll save you time and effort by preventing you from tracking all on your own.

After completion of the installation process, you can verify if it went smoothly by typing 'ffmpeg' in the command line interface, which should an output similar to the one below, if ffmpeg is present:
