ffmpeg installation


I have been trying to install ffmpeg on my local machine. I have compiled apache and php with gd support. Info.php shows gd has been enabled and also its listing in php -m . BUt then I tried to install ffmpeg and some more modules using the below link. Got some dependedcy errors in beteen and i fixed it. When all finished I looked in info.php but its not showing there.

php -r 'phpinfo();' | grep ffmpeg
PHP Warning: phpinfo(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Asia/Calcutta' for 'IST/5.0/no DST' instead in Command line code on line 1

Since you use fedora, you can use yum to install ffmpeg.
As root:
yum install ffmpeg*
This will install all packages that start with ffmpeg; Will also install dev files. Note that you may need to enable your third party repositories (livna, rpmfusion, etc).
