Jon Severinsson's FFmpeg PPA

PPA description

Updated FFmpeg packages, including dependencies.

Note: On lucid (10.04) This PPA depends on some packages found in the official backports repository. Please enable it before adding this PPA to your sources.

Please note that this is *actual* FFmpeg, from
Recent Debian and Ubuntu packages feature Libav (from, a prominent FFmpeg fork, instead. You should be safe upgrading from Libav to FFmpeg, as the FFmpeg developers regularly pull from the Libav git tree, and thus have all Libav features, as well as several of their own.

However, both Libav and FFmpeg periodically break backward compatibility in order to more easily provide new features, so applications built against one version will not always work with the next:

FFmpeg 0.7 is backward compatible with FFmpeg 0.6 and 0.5, as well as Libav 0.6 and 0.5; FFmpeg 0.10 is backward compatible with FFmpeg 0.8 and 0.9, as well as Libav 0.7 and 0.8; FFmpeg 1.2 is backwards compatible with FFmpeg 1.1, as well as Libav 9; FFmpeg 2.1 is backwards compatible with FFmpeg 2.0; FFmpeg 2.2 is backwards compatible with Libav 10.

For lucid (10.04) this PPA provides both FFmpeg 0.10 and (part of) FFmpeg 0.7. The `ffmpeg` source package provides shared libraries, development files, and executables from FFmpeg 0.10, while the `ffmpeg-oldabi` source package provides the shared libraries from FFmpeg 0.7.

For precise (12.04) through saucy (13.10) this PPA provides FFmpeg 0.10.

For trusty (14.04) this PPA provides FFmpeg 1.2.
