Install ffmpeg mplayer flvtool2 yamdi x264 theora mp3lame vorbis ogg faac

 

 

This is a tutorial to enable video sharing support on Centos servers.

This should install ffmpeg, mplayer, mencoder, flvtool2, yamdi, x264, theora, mp3lame, vorbis, ogg, faac, faad2, xvid, mediainfo, mp4box, neroaacenc . These tools will enable on your server:

  • video and audio conversion
  • thumbnail generation
  • FLV meta injection (flvtool2, yamdi)
  • extra codecs (x264, theora, mp3lame, vorbis, ogg, faac, faad2, xvid)

This is functional and we update it each time we configure a new server.
Installation is done using the “root” account.

 

Attention: If you copy and paste commands below, make sure “-” are not converted to “.”.  If these get converted, edit “.” back to “-“. Some options use 2 * “-“.

Some prerequisites:

 

rpm -ivh  http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm

yum install libogg libogg-devel libvorbis libvorbis-devel
yum install x264 lame vorbis faac faad2 yamdi

The quick way to setup ffmpeg, mplayer, mencoder:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm

or if you have 64bit server

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

yum install gcc gcc-c++ automake autoconf libtool yasm git subversion
yum install libogg zlib-devel libtool


yum install libogg-devel libvorbis libvorbis-devel
yum -y install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel mplayer mencoder ffmpeg-libpostproc

 

 

Edit the /etc/ld.so.conf file and add the following lines:

/usr/local/lib
/usr/lib

GIT
(required to get X264)

tar zxf yamdi-1.4.tar.gz
cd yamdi-1.4
gcc yamdi.c -o yamdi -O2 -Wall
mv yamdi /usr/bin/
yamdi -h

INSTALLATION RESULTS

mencoder: /usr/local/bin/mencoder
mplayer: /usr/local/bin/mplayer
yamdi: /usr/bin/yamdi

Add these shortcuts to /usr/bin if you need these there by default:
mencoder to /usr/local/bin/mencoder
mplayer to /usr/local/bin/mplayer

SuPHP fix

With suphp  “env -i” is required when executing php scripts.

exec(“env -i /usr/bin/php ” . $cmd.  ‘>/dev/null &’);
