  1. FFMPEG is also not available in the official repository of CentOS so, we’ll need to install NUX Dextop Release and EPEL “Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux” repository in our CentOS machine as its available in it.

    # rpm -Uvh
    # yum install epel-release

    After the repositories are added in our machine, we’ll now go for the installation of FFMPEG in our machine by running the following yum package manager.

    # yum install ffmpeg

  2. Quick, Easy and Updated FFMPEG Installation
    For current version in December / 2016 is FFMPEG version 2.6.8.
    Execute commands for CenTOS 7:
    # yum install epel-release -y
    # yum update -y
    # shutdown -r now
    After restarting the server:
    # rpm –import
    # rpm -Uvh
    # yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel -y
    Ready. Just type ffmpeg to test
    I hope I have helped!
