FFmpeg is piece of software to handle various multimedia formats. It's used by other software and plugins to take screenshots, make file conversions and other things.

You'll need to execute some commands via SSH to use this software. There is a separate guide on how to connect to your slot via SSH. Commands are kept as simple as possible and in most cases will simply need to be copied and pasted into the terminal window (then executed by pressing the Enter key).


Install FFmpeg by logging in via SSH, then copying and pasting the following:

mkdir -p ~/bin && bash
wget -qO ~/ffmpeg.tar.gz https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/builds/ffmpeg-git-64bit-static.tar.xz
tar xf ~/ffmpeg.tar.gz && cd && rm -rf ffmpeg-*-64bit-static/{manpages,presets,readme.txt}
cp ~/ffmpeg-*-64bit-static/* ~/bin
chmod 700 ~/bin/{ffmpeg,ffprobe,ffmpeg-10bit,qt-faststart}
cd && rm -rf ffmpeg{.tar.gz,-*-64bit-static}
