1. Create a directory to do our work


mkdir ~/ffmpeg
cd ~/ffmpeg

2. Get all the source files


wget http://www3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/essential-20061022.tar.bz2
wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/9225/flvtool2_1.0.5_rc6.tgz
wget http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/lame/lame-3.97.tar.gz
wget http://superb-west.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/ffmpeg-php/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0.tbz2
wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/ogg/libogg-1.1.3.tar.gz
wget http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/libvorbis-1.1.2.tar.gz

3. Extract all the source files


bunzip2 essential-20061022.tar.bz2; tar xvf essential-20061022.tar
tar zxvf flvtool2_1.0.5_rc6.tgz
tar zxvf lame-3.97.tar.gz
bunzip2 ffmpeg-php-0.5.0.tbz2; tar xvf ffmpeg-php-0.5.0.tar
tar zxvf libogg-1.1.3.tar.gz
tar zxvf libvorbis-1.1.2.tar.gz

4. Create the codecs directory & import them


mkdir /usr/local/lib/codecs/
mv essential-20061022/* /usr/local/lib/codecs/
chmod -R 755 /usr/local/lib/codecs/

5. Install SVN/Ruby (Depends on OS, this is for RHEL/CentOS)


yum install subversion
yum install ruby
yum install ncurses-devel

6. Get the latest FFMPEG/MPlayer from the subversion


svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer

7. Compile LAME


cd ~/ffmpeg/lame-3.97
./configure
make
make install

8. Compile libOGG


cd ~/ffmpeg/libogg-1.1.3
./configure
make
make install

9. Compile libVorbis


cd ~/ffmpeg/libvorbis-1.1.2
./configure
make
make install

10. Compile flvtool2


cd ~/ffmpeg/flvtool2_1.0.5_rc6
ruby setup.rb config
ruby setup.rb setup
ruby setup.rb install

11. Compile MPlayer


cd ~/ffmpeg/mplayer
./configure
make
make install

12. Compile FFMPEG


cd ~/ffmpeg/ffmpeg
./configure –enable-libmp3lame –enable-libogg –enable-libvorbis –disable-mmx –enable-shared
echo ‘#define HAVE_LRINTF 1′ >> config.h
make
make install

13. Finalize the codec setups


ln -s /usr/local/lib/libavformat.so.50 /usr/lib/libavformat.so.50
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libavcodec.so.51 /usr/lib/libavcodec.so.51
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libavutil.so.49 /usr/lib/libavutil.so.49
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libmp3lame.so.0 /usr/lib/libmp3lame.so.0
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libavformat.so.51 /usr/lib/libavformat.so.51

14. Compile FFMPEG-PHP


cd ~/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0
phpize
./configure
make
make install

15. Install FFMPEG-PHP (make sure the php.ini path is correct.)


echo ‘extension=/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/ no-debug-non-zts-20020429/ffmpeg.so’ >> /usr/local/Zend/etc/php.ini

16. Restart Apache to load FFMPEG-PHP (Depends on OS, this is for RHEL/CentOS)


service httpd restart

17. Verify if it works


php -r ‘phpinfo();’ | grep ffmpeg

If you get a few lines such as
ffmpeg
ffmpeg support (ffmpeg-php) => enabled
ffmpeg-php version => 0.5.0
ffmpeg.allow_persistent => 0 => 0
