Hello Guys,
I have this weird issue. I installed FFMPEG modules using ffmpegisntaller's auto installer. It seems that everything is installed. Take a look at following commands/

Code:
[email protected] [~]# which ffmpeg
/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg
This shows that ffmpeg is indeed installed. But when any one tries actually using it, it shows that it is not installed. I have ensured that are using the correct path.

Now, I checked in php config, here is the output.

Code:
[email protected] [~]# php -i | grep ffmpeg
[email protected] [~]#
This means php is not using ffmpeg. How can I fix it? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your reply, I understand there is no official support from cPanel for ffmpeg. I just want a general opinion as to where I should be looking to fix this, since there are quite a few experienced admins around on the forums.

Please note that FFMPEG and FFMPEG-PHP are 2 separate things. You have installed FFMPEG now. You need PHP's FFMPEG extension. You can find it out here

Elinux.co.in | Linux Cpanel/ WHM blog | Linux Webhosting Blog, Linux blogsHow to install ffmpeg-php in linux, How to install ffmpeg-php, how to install ffmpeg-PHP for newbies to linux, How to Install ffmpeg ffmpeg-php CentOS with Cpanel | Linux

and once done just add extension=ffmpeg-php.so in your php.ini file.


Hope this help :)
