    Question FFmpeg

    Anybody have FFmpeg installed on their shared server, here at JagPC?

    Thought I should ask before opening a ticket.

    EDIT: Gawd! I've had to edit this post 3 times. Time to call it a day...

    It's supposed to work great. I need it for the Menalto Gallery 2 proggie I'm playing around with... If FFmpeg is active, G2 will stream video clips when you click on the thumbnail. Otherwise, all you can do is download the videos...

    I guess I'll contact Tech Support and see what they say.

    Did you ever get any answer on the FFMpeg thing?

    I'm looking at it as well to use for my Gallery2 page.

    Truth be told, I forgot all about it...

    Anyway, 'we' got 'our' answer, yes?

    However, the 'thing' about this place is -- if enough ppl ask for it, JagPC will usually oblige...

    Just checked the server I was recently moved to -- no dice!

    Code:
    /home/[TARGET_USER]/public_html$ man FFMpeg
    No manual entry for FFMpeg
    /home/[TARGET_USER]/public_html$ apropos FFMpeg
    FFMpeg: nothing appropriate
    /home/[TARGET_USER]/public_html$ which FFMpeg
    which: no FFMpeg in (/usr/local/jdk/bin:/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin)
    /home/[TARGET_USER]/public_html$ locate FFMpeg
    warning: locate: could not open database: /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db: Permission denied

    I too would like ffmpeg for my gallery installation. I asked about it last year...

    + + + Client + + + : . 2005-06-06 / 14:00:51
    sample URL:
    Is ffmpeg (http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/index.php) installed and if so what is the path to it?


    - - - Tech - - - : Masood. 2005-06-06 / 14:01:41
    No, sorry it is not installed nor supported on shared web hosting accounts.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Regards,
    Masood

    + + + Client + + + : 2005-06-06 / 14:05:39
    Is that something I can compile and install myself? What if I found a precompiled binary?


    - - - Tech - - - : Masood. 2005-06-06 / 14:19:09
    No, you can not compile it yourself. You can try a precompiled binary if you wish.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Regards,
    Masood
    I havent found a precompiled binary that works yet...

    Chances are you won't. I doubt that something like that would work too well on shared hosting-even if you found a binary that worked.

    WoW! That is sooooooo cool!!!

    You upload the video and FFmpeg does the rest -- well, almost -- I had to manually add the video width/height -- but FFmpeg made the title, thumbnail, et cetera...

    When you click the thumbnail, the video starts playing -- or you can add it to your cart and download it in a ZIP file.

    Too much!

    Um... Kadina... I know it was a year ago, but are you sure this is okay with Masood?
