Problem installing ffmpeg-php

Postby Cendent » 2011/07/26 03:17:16

I used the webtatic repository to get ffmpeg and ffmpeg-devel and their dependencies.

Then I tried installing ffmpeg-php by using the following:

From /usr/local/source/ I ran the following:

wget ... 0.6.0.tbz2
tar xjvf ffmpeg-php-0.6.0.tbz2
cd ffmpeg-php-0.6.0
make install

With the last command it appears to install ok I get:
Installing shared extensions: /usr/local/lib/php/20090626/

I restart apache but not seeing ffmpeg when i print out the phpinfo();

Hopeing someone can help, let me know if you need any information.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

I'd be prone to use a better-known repo such as RPMforge for ffmpeg, google a ffmpeg-php src.rpm and follow How to Rebuild a Source RPM to create a package.
