Steps to install FFmpeg with all modules

Posted at August 4, 2016 at 4:55 pm by Jithin

FFmpeg is a free software, handling multimedia data by produces programs and libraries and managing of audio or video streams. FFmpeg is published under the GNU Lesser General Public License. The FFmpeg command line program for transcoding multimedia files. FFmpeg includes libavcodec (libavcodec is a free and open-source library of codecs for encoding and decoding video and audio data.) FFmpeg/Libav allow you to make recordings, corrections with filters, or transcode media from one format to another. FFmpeg mostly developed on Linux, but also compiled on Microsoft Windows, Android, Mac OS X, and many more operating system. Microprocessor and many computing platforms are also supported like PowerPC, ARM, and MIPS.

 

HOW TO INSTALL FFMPEG ON CENTOS

1) We need to ensure that some codecs and FFmpeg itself are not installed in our system.

# yum remove libvpx libogg libvorbis libtheora libx264 x264 ffmpeg

# yum update

2) Install some of the Ffmpeg’s dependencies from some non-official CentOS repos, EPEL and RPMForge.

# yum install http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.3-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

# yum install http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

3) Now we can install dependencies.

First, base repo

# yum install autoconf automake gcc gcc-c++ git libtool make nasm pkgconfig wget opencv zlib-devel dbus-devel lua-devel zvbi libdvdread-devel  libdc1394-devel libxcb-devel xcb-util-devel libxml2-devel mesa-libGLU-devel pulseaudio-libs-devel alsa-lib-devel libgcrypt-devel qt-devel gsm-devel

Then from EPEL:

# yum –enablerepo=epel install yasm libva-devel libass-devel libkate-devel libbluray-devel libdvdnav-devel libcddb-devel libmodplug-devel

At last from RPMForge:

# yum –enablerepo=rpmforge install a52dec-devel libmpeg2-devel

 

COMPILATION OF DEPENDENCIES

1) First, need to choose where all the sources are going to live. Here /opt/ffmpeg is using.

2) So, first make directory.

# mkdir -p /opt/ffmpeg/sources

3) Then start compilation of dependencies.

 

X264

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# git clone git://git.videolan.org/x264

# cd x264

# ./configure –enable-shared

# make

# make install

 

XVID

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# wget http://downloads.xvid.org/downloads/xvidcore-1.3.2.tar.gz

# tar xvfz xvidcore-1.3.2.tar.gz

# cd xvidcore-1.3.2/build/generic

# ./configure –prefix=/usr/local

# make

# make install

 

LIBFDK_AAC

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# git clone –depth 1 git://github.com/mstorsjo/fdk-aac.git

# cd fdk-aac

# autoreconf -fiv

# ./configure –enable-shared

# make

# make install

 

LAME

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/lame/lame/3.99/lame-3.99.5.tar.gz

# tar xzvf lame-3.99.5.tar.gz

# cd lame-3.99.5

# ./configure –enable-shared –enable-nasm

# make

# make install

 

OPENCORE AMR CODEC

#cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/opencore-amr/opencore-amr/0.1.2/opencore-amr-0.1.2.tar.gz

# tar xvfz opencore-amr-0.1.2.tar.gz

# cd opencore-amr-0.1.2

# ./configure

# make

# make install

 

LIBOGG

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/ogg/libogg-1.3.0.tar.gz

# tar xzvf libogg-1.3.0.tar.gz

# cd libogg-1.3.0

# ./configure –enable-shared

# make

# make install

 

LIBTHEORA

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/theora/libtheora-1.1.1.tar.gz

# tar xzvf libtheora-1.1.1.tar.gz

# cd libtheora-1.1.1

# ./configure –enable-shared

# make

# make install

 

LIBVORBIS

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/libvorbis-1.3.3.tar.gz

# tar xzvf libvorbis-1.3.3.tar.gz

# cd libvorbis-1.3.3

# ./configure –enable-shared

# make

# make install

 

LIBVPX

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# git clone http://git.chromium.org/webm/libvpx.git

# cd libvpx

# ./configure –enable-shared

# make

# make install

And finally,

 

FFMPEG

# cd /opt/ffmpeg/sources

# git clone git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg

# cd ffmpeg

# ./configure –enable-gpl –enable-version3 –enable-libfdk_aac –enable-libmp3lame –enable-libtheora –enable-libvorbis –enable-libvpx –enable-libx264 –enable-nonfree  –enable-libopencore-amrnb –enable-libopencore-amrwb –enable-libgsm –enable-libxvid –disable-static –enable-shared

# make

# make install

 

RUNNING FFMPEG

All the previous steps were executed successfully, then going to end with a compiled FFmpeg binary.

# ffmpeg

May be a chances of getting something like

> ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libavdevice.so.55: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

To fix that issue we need to add the path /usr/local/lib shared libraries ldconfig cache.

# ldd `which ffmpeg`

# find /usr/local/lib/

 

Let’s add the directory on the ldconfig cache.

# vim /etc/ld.so.conf

 

It should look something like.

include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf

/usr/local/lib

 

Now, update the cache.

# ldconfig

You will get the following message.

Use -h to get full help or, even better, run ‘man ffmpeg’

That’s it, FFmpeg installation is successfully completed.
