    FFMPEG error - libavdevice.so.52: cannot open

    Hello,
    I have installed FFMPEG and other codecs a couple of days ago on a server. But whenever I try to use FFMPEG, Mencodere etc, I get the following error.

    /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries:
    libavdevice.so.52: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The first result on google looks promising... if you can't google error messages and take a stab at it, then you should hire a sysadmin.

    You need to find the path that contains that lib file and add it to /etc/ld.so.conf then run "ldconfig".

    That is assuming that lib exists on your system.
