General remarks

When you intend to use FFmpeg to transcode videos, make sure your FFmpeg installation handles all the file formats before installing the module. Linux distributions using precompiled binaries, such as Ubuntu, usually do not provide the best compile options and it is advised to compile FFmpeg yourself.

The following guides will help you to get a good FFmpeg installation:

  • Ubuntu: FFmpeg compilation guide
  • Ubuntu: guide to enhance your FFmpeg installation using precompiled packages
  • Gentoo: make sure to setup the right USE flags before installing
  • Windows: Windows packages
