Install Latest FFMPEG on centos 7 or centos 7.2


we have not tested yet.but it should be fine work on centos cpanel server
These steps walk through installing a static binary of any ffmpeg version on to your linux machine. If you want to compile from source, there are several ways to do so. Here’s the official guide. Tested and works on an AWS EC2 Ubuntu instance, but should work on any Linux machine.

SSH into your instance and become root

$ sudo su –

cd to the the /usr/local/bin directory

$ cd /usr/local/bin

Inside the /usr/local/bin directory, create an /ffmpeg directory

$ mkdir ffmpeg

cd into the new directory

$ cd ffmpeg

Check the static build directory at:
select a version of ffmpeg or use the latest version alias, and wget it. Other FFmpeg static builds available here.
$ wget

The file should now be in /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg. Untar it…

$ tar xf ffmpeg-release-64bit-static.tar.xz

Run it and check what the latest version is

$ ./ffmpeg -version

The output should look something like this

ffmpeg version N-60675-g8fe1076
built on Feb 16 2014 05:45:47 with gcc 4.6 (Debian 4.6.3-1)

Move the contents of your static untarred folder into the parent /ffmpeg dir
$ mv * ../
If you want to be able to execute $ ffmpeg from any directory, you’ll need to create a symlink inside /usr/bin:
$ ln -s /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg/ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg
$ ln -s /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg/ffprobe /usr/bin/ffprobe #for ffprobe
done. You are now able to run the $ ffmpeg command from anywhere.
