Spent all day on this with no success.

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

[email protected][/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:

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


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

[email protected] [/svn/demorepo]# yum install ffmpeg

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.

I had problems with it in past.

Try this : keralpatel.com/install-ffmpeg-on-server/

I wrote it down to help others. :)

You can use autoinstaller script provided by Sherin at here:

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!

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.

Just install rpmforge repo, set it to disabled in the yum repo config.

Then type:

yum --enablerepo=rpmforge install ffmpeg

Can't be much simpler than that.
