[How-To] Install FFMPEG to your account

Hello folks!

Let me first state that I have not tested if this installation of FFMPEG functions as required but the installation seems to have gone smoothly. If you attempt to use this install method and have any troubles, please do not submit a support ticket as Site5 does not provide support for 3rd party products. Feel free to respond to this post with any questions or issues you might have and I will do my best ( time permitting ) to assist in troubleshooting with you.

FFMPEG Install for Shared Hosting accounts.

Bash Shell for the account the procedure is initiated on.
Access to system Compiler and Fetch utility groups.

Note: For both of the above, you will likely need to submit a ticket unless previously requested. Please include the account domain name, and the specific system username which you will be logging into to perform this task to expedite your request.

cd ~
mkdir TEMP src bin bin/ffmpeg
cd src/
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
cd ffmpeg/
export TMPDIR='/home/username/TEMP/'
./configure --prefix=/home/username/bin/ffmpeg
# Your application may require extra configure options enabled to function correctly.
# Run "./configure --help" for a full list of available options.
# Contact the application vendor if you are not certain with this one.
make install

Your ffmpeg binary will be available @ "/home/username/bin/ffmpeg/bin/".
