    5 This guide supports '''Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal)''', '''Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)''', and '''Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)'''. Separate guides are available for [wiki:UbuntuCompilationGuideLucid Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx)] and [wiki:UbuntuCompilationGuideHardy Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)]. This guide will provide the latest FFmpeg code and enable several external encoding and decoding libraries: ''fdk-aac'' (AAC encoder), ''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. This guide will also install many filters, including the `subtitles` filter for hardcoding subtitles (see the filter list in the [wiki:FilteringGuide#ListofFilters Filtering Guide]).

    33 == Installation ==
    34 
    35 === Yasm ===

    47 }}}
    48 
    49 === x264 ===
    50 H.264 video encoder. The following commands will get the current source files, compile, and install x264. See the [wiki:x264EncodingGuide x264 Encoding Guide] for some usage examples.

    124 
    125 == Finish ==
    126 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.
    127 
    128 ----
    129 
    130 == Optional Installation ==
    131 === qt-faststart ===
    132 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`. When converting files with ffmpeg you can add `-movflags faststart` to have the same effect.
    133 {{{
    134 cd ~/ffmpeg
    135 make tools/qt-faststart
    136 sudo checkinstall --pkgname=qt-faststart --pkgversion="$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M)-git" --backup=no \
    137   --deldoc=yes --fstrans=no --default install -Dm755 tools/qt-faststart \
    138   /usr/local/bin/qt-faststart
    139 }}}
    140 
    141 === Add `lavf` support to x264 ===
    142 This allows x264 to accept just about any input that FFmpeg can handle and is useful if you want to use x264 directly. See a [http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=11243462&postcount=1839 more detailed explanation] of what this means.

    149   awk -F'[" ]' '/POINT/{print $4"+git"$5}')" --backup=no --deldoc=yes \

    197 
    198 === FFmpeg ===
    199 {{{
    200 cd ~/ffmpeg
    201 make distclean
    202 git pull
    203 }}}
    204 Now run `./configure`, `make`, and `checkinstall` as shown in the [#FFmpeg Install FFmpeg] section.

    207 
    208 == Reverting Changes Made by This Guide ==
    209 To remove FFmpeg, x264, and other packages installed for this guide:
    210 {{{
    211 sudo apt-get autoremove autoconf automake build-essential checkinstall fdk-aac ffmpeg git libass-dev \
    212   libgpac-dev libjack-jackd2-dev libmp3lame-dev libsdl1.2-dev libspeex-dev libtheora-dev libtool \
    213   libva-dev libvdpau-dev libvorbis-dev libvpx libx11-dev libxfixes-dev opus qt-faststart texi2html \
    214   x264 yasm zlib1g-dev
    215 }}}
    216 Lastly, delete the `x264`, `fdk-aac`, `libvpx`, `opus`, and `ffmpeg` directories in your home folder.
