Installing FFMPEG & MENCODER completely with all codecs and tools


I wanted to share this. It has made my life much simpler with FFMPEG and Mencoder.

I needed to install a complete ffmpeg and mencoder setup including all the codecs to allow conversion of all video formats. I came across this and it was everything I needed for installing ffmpeg and mencoder with all the codecs required for converting all video formats.

This package has included in it complete instructions for installing ffmpeg, mencoder, flvtool2, mp3lame, faad, faac, h264, vorbis, 3gp and 3g2 codecs and more. It even included the current ffmpeg-php. All the software was the latest and most current version.

Before I found this I found myself spending hours searching, downloading source code and codecs to find out I did not have the proper stuff.

After finding this package, I found everything needed for a complete installation of ffmpeg and mencoder including every utility, codec, software, and instructions required to implement it properly.

I have already used it a half a dozen times and this thing saved me so much time and money, I actually am making some money on the installation projects.

Anyway you can find it here: Link removed pending investigation
I hope this is helpful and saves you all the headaches it did me.

Let me know.

All for the low low price of $49.95 USD, ORDER TODAY ! And don't think for one second that you can download all these FLOSS programs for free from their respective sites, that would be a terrible waste of time and money. Not to mention that:

This library is delivered as source code, allowing you to compile and install on just about any Linux / Unix system. These source files are the latest versions as of March 2009. Complete documentation is included.
So basically what they did was they took the source code of all these FLOSS programs, put them in an archive, and are now selling them for $49.95, saving you the trouble, hassle, and money (as jjrjr1 the spam bot mentions above) of downloading them yourself for free. I'm wondering if this is legal, I guess you'd have to check the licenses of all these programs, I'm wondering if they did that ...

BTW, reported as possible advertising.

jjrjr1; If you will confirm that you have no financial interest in this company, then we can consider how to proceed.
