    I am running the latest version of cPanel on as Linux/Apache v2.2.25 (cgi-fcgi) and PHP 5.4.20, and I've been trying to install ffmpeg and ffmpeg-php.

    It's turned into a giant nightmare with the failing to compile ffmpeg and ffmpeg-php. I'm basically spinning my wheels with trying different installation methods and receiving the same compilation errors.

    Is there an easy way to install ffmpeg via cPanel?

    Hello :)

    Please note that assistance with FFMPEG software application installations (including software that utilizes this software) and technical support for this piece of software are not available from cPanel. While FFMPEG software is distributed subject to GPL licenses, the use and installation of the software may also require patent licenses from third parties.

    Because of the legal uncertainty relating to the FFMPEG software application, we are not able to assist in the installation or troubleshooting of FFMPEG.

    This is not legal advice or a legal opinion. We are simply explaining that our participation in the installation/troubleshooting of this software is not available. Please see the following location for any legal discussion:

    You may want to try searching for installation assistance on forums where FFMPEG discussions occur.

    Thank you.
