Installing FFMPEG the Easy Way on OpenSuSE 11.1

Installing ffmpeg was formerly a pain for me. Why? I downloaded all dependencies manually and there are a ton of them. I recently stumbled on a repository, Packman that has ffmpeg and its dependencies in stock. This made installation a pain-free experience.

Packman Repository also offers One-Click Install which is supported from OpenSuSE 10.3. As the name suggests, one-click [and a few accept or next buttons] and you are done.

One-Click Install

  1. Enable all repositories currently in your YaST Software Repositories. This is important for YaST to automatically get all dependencies.
  2. Goto Packman Repository
  3. Search for ffmpeg
  4. Click on One-click Install
  5. Follow the Wizard and that’s ALL

Repository Installation

  1. Enable all repositories currently in your YaST Software Repositories. This is important for YaST to automatically get all dependencies.
  2. Add Packman Repository to your Software Repositories. You can get a link to it from here http://en.opensuse.org/Additional_package_repositories
  3. Goto Software Management
  4. Search ffmpeg, and mark it for installation.
  5. Click on finish and it would be install for you.
