How to install FFmpeg and others on linux Cpanel/WHM?


Ok, I have a dedicated server with Cpanel WHM running on linux. I want to run something like a youtube script and the script says I need to have installed on the server a few codecs. FFmpeg, Lame MP3 Encoder, FFmpeg-PHP, Mplayer + Mencoder, and Libogg + Libvorbis. It has links to them but I'm not sure what I have to download and most importantly how to install them. Can someone walk me through this or give a quick guide or tutorial online so I can achieve what I want to do. Thank you.

It all depends on what operating system the Cpanel is on. If it is Fedora / CentOS you may need to download the RPMs and install the manually (the last Cpanel server I worked on had Yum removed). If you are luckey enough to have Yum or Apt there are sources you can dd to get those codecs which I (and I'm sure others here) can point you to.

My server is using CentOS, specifically, 4.3 i686. The required codecs from the script's readme gives me links that I don't see rpm files for download.

For example:
http://www.xiph.org/downloads/
for Libogg + Libvorbis.

or the Lame Mp3 Encoder

Here is the whole list:
FFmpeg (http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu)
FFmpeg-PHP (http://ffmpeg-php.sourceforge.net)
Mplayer + Mencoder (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html )
flv2tool (http://inlet-media.de/flvtool2)
LAME MP3 Encoder
Libogg + Libvorbis (http://www.xiph.org/downloads)

The script (package) is Alstrasoft Video Share Enterprise. Under software->Install RPM-> what is that list? The list starts with the word Installed, followed by others others such as, near the end of the list, YUM like you said, yum fastestmirror, yum protectbase, yum utils, and yumex. Does that mean they are already installed or I have to install them from that list? I don't see where I can import my own rpm. How do I install if there isn't an rpm file? Thanks.

The RedHat EL4 packages *should* be compatible (I have never tried it but CentOS is designed to be 100% compatible with RHEL). Dag should have the rest of the packages if you go up one level also.

Thanks for the rpm link. I'm still stuck on how to install it into the Cpanel WHM. Is there an ftp account for the WHM account to install these codecs or can they be installed from the domain accounts?
