Ffmpeg is a very fast video and audio converter. It can also grab from a live audio/video source.

Instructions for users: 

Type ffmpeg

Licence Details: 


Admin notes: 

Part of the distro on Ubuntu. Has to be compiled on SuSE.

The project has no releases as such; you have to check the code out from SVN. I compiled separate versions for 32 and 64-bit machines on SuSE 10.3 but I'm not sure it was necessary.

 svn checkout svn:// ffmpeg ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/shared/suse-10.3/x86_64/ffmpeg make make install 


The 32-bit binary from 10.3 was linked into the generic suse 11.1 bin directory.
