Discovering the Public Cloud

FFmpeg provides tools for processing audio or video flows.

As this library requires major processing resources it is not available by default on shared servers.

If you own a VPS or dedicated server, contact our support. They will install the complete set on the server.

In our example, we use the SSH access and consider the following information:

  • Account name: foo
  • ffmpeg directory: $HOME/ffmpeg/
foo@ssh:~/ffmpeg$ wget -O- https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/releases/ffmpeg-release-amd64-static.tar.xz|tar xJf --strip-components=1

Binary files will be available in the $HOME/ffmpeg/ directory.

Take the last amd64 stable version available.
