Debian multimedia - better ffmpeg on Lenny

I needed a better supported ffmpeg for our video sharing needs at Duuit! just trying to keep things reproducible by documenting.

The first package to install is debian-multimedia-keyring.

First download the debian-multimedia-keyring package.


sudo dpkg -i debian-multimedia-keyring_2008.10.16_all.deb

Now add to the sources.list

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

deb lenny main non-free

deb lenny main non-free

deb-src sid main 

deb-src sid main

sudo apt-get update

your ready to go.


sudo apt-get build-dep ffmpeg

sudo apt-get -b source ffmpeg

There will be more than one .deb file here, just install each like so:

sudo dpkg -i filenames.deb

It's not working at the moment so instead do this:

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

Done. :)
