    5 This guide supports '''Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS'''. If you are using a different Ubuntu version see the main [wiki:UbuntuCompilationGuide Compile FFmpeg on Ubuntu Guide]. This guide will enable several external encoders and decoders: ''libfaac'' (AAC encoder), ''libmp3lame'' (MP3 encoder), ''libopencore-amr'' (AMR encoder/decoder), ''libtheora'' (Theora encoder), ''libvorbis'' (Vorbis encoder), ''libvpx'' (VP8 encoder/decoder), and ''libx264'' (H.264 encoder). These are optional and may be omitted if desired.

    9 == Preparation ==
    10 Remove any existing packages:
    11 {{{
    12 sudo apt-get remove ffmpeg x264 libx264-dev yasm
    13 }}}
    14 
    15 Get the dependencies ('''Ubuntu Desktop''' users):
    16 {{{
    17 sudo apt-get update
    18 sudo apt-get install -y build-essential git-core checkinstall texi2html libfaac-dev \
    19     libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libsdl1.2-dev libtheora-dev \
    20     libvorbis-dev libx11-dev libxfixes-dev pkg-config zlib1g-dev
    21 }}}
    22 
    23 Get the dependencies ('''Ubuntu Server''' or headless users):
    24 {{{
    25 sudo apt-get update
    26 sudo apt-get install -y build-essential git-core checkinstall texi2html libfaac-dev \

    28 }}}
    29 
    30 == Installation ==
    31 === Yasm ===
    32 Yasm is an assembler and is recommended for x264 and FFmpeg.

    98 
    99   '''Note:''' Ubuntu Server users should omit `--enable-x11grab`.
    100 
    101 == Finish ==
    102 Installation is now complete and FFmpeg is now ready for use. You can keep the `x264`, `libvpx`, and `ffmpeg` directories in your home directory if you plan on updating later. See [#update Updating FFmpeg] below for more details. Some optional steps are next followed by instructions on updating FFmpeg and finally instructions on reverting all changes made by this guide.
    103 
    104 ----
    105 
    106 == Optional Installation ==
    107 === qt-faststart ===
    108 This is a useful tool if you're showing your H.264 in MP4 videos on the web. It relocates some data in the video to allow playback to begin before the file is completely downloaded. Usage: `qt-faststart input.mp4 output.mp4`.
    109 {{{
    110 cd ~/ffmpeg
    111 make tools/qt-faststart
    112 sudo checkinstall --pkgname=qt-faststart --pkgversion="$(./version.sh)" --backup=no \
    113     --deldoc=yes --default install -Dm755 tools/qt-faststart /usr/local/bin/qt-faststart
    114 }}}
    115 
    116 === Add `lavf` support to x264 ===
    117 This allows x264 to accept just about any input that FFmpeg can handle and is useful if you want to use x264 directly.
    118 {{{
    119 cd ~/x264
    120 make distclean
    121 ./configure --enable-static
    122 make
    123 sudo checkinstall --pkgname=x264 --pkgversion="3:$(./version.sh | \
    124   awk -F'[" ]' '/POINT/{print $4"+git"$5}')" --backup=no --deldoc=yes \
    125   --fstrans=no --default

    130 == Updating FFmpeg ==#update
    131 Development of FFmpeg and x264 is active and an occasional update can give you new features and bug fixes. First, remove some packages and then update the dependencies:
    132 {{{
    133 sudo apt-get -y remove ffmpeg x264 libx264-dev libvpx-dev
    134 sudo apt-get update
    135 sudo apt-get install -y build-essential git-core checkinstall texi2html libfaac-dev \
    136     libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libsdl1.2-dev libtheora-dev \
    137     libvorbis-dev libx11-dev libxfixes-dev pkg-config zlib1g-dev
    138 }}}
    139 
    140 === x264 ===
    141 {{{
    142 cd ~/x264
    143 make distclean
    144 git pull
    145 }}}
    146 Now run `./configure`, `make`, and `make install` as shown in the [#x264 Install x264] section.
    147 
    148 === libvpx ===
    149 {{{
    150 cd ~/libvpx
    151 make clean
    152 git pull
    153 }}}
    154 Now run `./configure`, `make`, and `make install` as shown in the [#libvpx Install libvpx] section.
    155 
    156 === FFmpeg ===
    157 {{{
    158 cd ~/ffmpeg
    159 make distclean
    160 git pull
    161 }}}
    162 Now run `./configure`, `make`, and `make install` as shown in the [#ffmpeg Install FFmpeg] section.
    163 
    164 ----
    165 
    166 == Reverting Changes Made by This Guide ==
    167 To remove FFmpeg/x264 and other packages added for this guide:
    168 {{{
    169 sudo apt-get remove x264 ffmpeg qt-faststart build-essential git-core checkinstall \
    170   nasm yasm texi2html libfaac-dev lame-ffmpeg libsdl1.2-dev libtheora-dev libvorbis-dev \
    171   libx11-dev libxfixes-dev zlib1g-dev
    172 }}}
    173 Lastly, delete the `x264`, `libvpx`, and `ffmpeg` directories in your home folder.
    174 
    175 == If You Need Help ==
    176 Feel free to ask your questions at the #ffmpeg IRC channel or the [http://ffmpeg.org/contact.html ffmpeg-user] mailing list.
