How To

Install FFMPEG on a RedHat based OS using yum

If you need to install FFMPEG, the easiest way to do it is with yum. You can run this command to install it.

[email protected][/]#yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel

If you run that command and you get package not found, you just need to add the repository for the dag packages to yum. To do that, you will want to create the file /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo

[email protected][/]#nano /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo

then add this in it

name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Then save the file.

After that, go ahead and add the key for the repository so you don’t receive any key errors.

[email protected][/]#rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Once you do that, you should be able to install those packages with yum without a problem.
