How to Install FFMPEG Auto Installer on CentOS

Seeing as FFMPEG Auto Installer do not give clear instructions on how to install their packages I have produced a easy guide which hopefully should be of some use to server admins and novices alike.

Firstly SSH into your server.

Now run the following commands:

mkdir ~/ffmpeg-packages 
cd ~/ffmpeg-packages 
wget http://mirror.ffmpeginstaller.com/old/scripts/ffmpeg7/ffmpeginstaller.8.0.tar.gz 
tar -xvzf ffmpeginstaller.8.0.tar.gz
cd ffmpeginstaller.8.0

Im using version ffmpeginstaller.8.0 for this installation, make sure you edit your command to coincide with the current package.

Next run the install command:

./install.sh

That’s it.
