Enabling lame for ffmpeg when converting mpg to flv

Athough more extensive directions can be found here, I had a hard time using it without getting a bunch of errors in the process, so I've set up this up as a guide that worked for me. I'm assuming you are using Intrepid Ubuntu on a 32-bit machine. Make sure you have enabled multiverse, universe, and the various source code repos.

On the command line:

sudo apt-get remove ffmpeg

wget http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg-export-snapshot.tar.bz2

tar jxvf ffmpeg-export-snapshot.tar.bz2

cd ffmpeg-*/

sudo apt-get install liba52-dev libdts-dev libgsm1-dev libvorbis-dev  libxvidcore4 libxvidcore-dev libdc1394-22-dev libfaac-dev  libmp3lame-dev libx264-dev  libfaad-dev libtheora-dev libsdl1.2-dev

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --disable-debug --enable-shared --enable-gpl --enable-postproc --enable-swscale --enable-pthreads --enable-x11grab --enable-libdc1394 --enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad --enable-libgsm --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis  --enable-libxvid

Assuming everything goes through:


sudo make install

Then finally,

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/

To test your installation:

ffmpeg -version
