    Spent all day on this with no success.

    Been reading instructions on installing subversion, ffmpeg etc... and now im stuck on the following:

    root@server[/svn/demorepo]# svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
    svn: Can't connect to host 'svn.mplayerhq.hu': Connection timed out


    From first glance it appears that the website is down or unavailable but visiting it via a browser shows thats not the case:

    http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html

    I get the same error when aso trying:

    svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer


    SVN is installed and (seems) to be working:

    root@server [/svn/demorepo]# which svn
    /usr/local/bin/svn
    root@server [/svn/demorepo]# svn --version
    svn, version 1.4.5 (r25188)
    compiled Apr 28 2008, 20:16:21
    root@server [/svn/demorepo]#


    Any help is greatly appreciated but please dont suggest using yum install ffmpeg as ive already tried this with no success:

    root@server [/svn/demorepo]# yum install ffmpeg
    Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
    Server: CentOS-3 - Addons
    Server: CentOS-3 - Base
    Server: CentOS-3 - Extras
    Server: CentOS-3 - Updates
    Finding updated packages

    Cannot find a package matching ffmpeg
    No actions to take
    root@server [/svn/demorepo]#

    Because I asked a friend and they said that means its already installed any ideas?

    It does not mean FFMPEG is installed. It means it cannot find FFMPEG in any of the repos.

    You can add the DAG repo which includes FFMPEG:

    nano -w /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo

    Add:

    [dag]
    name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el$releasever/en/$basearch/dag
    gpgcheck=1
    enabled=1

    Then run yum update, then yum install ffmpeg (or ffmpeg* to get all devel packages too)

    The original link earlier in the thread for admin-ahead.com will work!

    They just simply moved the downloads to a different area of their site
    where you need to first register for an account (free) and then they
    will let you go ahead and download this and others.

    Clean up previous installation and try this: ServerTune :: Knowledgebase / HowTo :: FFmpeg and FFpeg-Php

    You can use autoinstaller script provided by Sherin at here:

    http://www.sherin.co.in/ffmpeg/ffmpeginstall.3.2.1.tar.gz

    Run install.sh and follow the wizards. Once done, edit php.ini and make sure the extension_dir is pointed to the correct directory. Normally, the installer will change it to extension_dir="" (this is wrong). The old value will be commented. Find it and uncomment that line.

    Then restart Apache. Done!

    how to install ffmpeg?

    i have read some discussions on it but still having problems. currently my host is bending over backwards to install it for me on my server but has had issues trying to install it. my host won't mind me copy/paste what he said here:

    "I have tried numerous attempts to install ffmpeg but its proving to be impossible. There are so many dependency problems - to install ffmpeg you need 3 other rpm libraries, these 3 libraries have their own dependencies needs (which requires other rpms to be installed - and these ones require even further rpms) so on and on it goes. Seems there are just too many dependenciy problems with this software. If you can find some installation info (tutorials, discussions, etc) for this software on RHE systems let me know otherwise it looks like we can\'t install this at the moment."

    is there someone here familiar with installing this on the server?

    also will ffmpeg conmtinue to be developed?
    it appears to be threatened by software patents?

    is there any other solution that does the same as ffmpeg?

    thanks.

    Did anyone else notice this script removed a large number of packages that shouldnt have been removed? When I tried it, it removed 90 packages that it thought were not needed including GD and others. The installation also failed completely so it was no good for us on centos 5 64 bit.
