How to install the transcoding tools on Debian 6 "Squeeze"?

Editions: Light, Community, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate, Corporate
Versions: all
For an update to ViMP 3.2.0+ you just have to install exiftool additionally. Mplayer/mencoder can be uninstalled. And please make sure the "deb-multimedia.org squeeze-backports"-repository is installed. Check the update note below then:

For using open source transcoding with ViMP you have to install the necessary transcoding tools (FFmpeg, exiftool).

Edit sources for "apt"

Debian and Ubuntu use the packet-manager "apt" to install software. We first have to add the needed sources (repositories):
(we recommend using "joe" to edit the file)

touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/deb-multimedia.org.list
joe /etc/apt/sources.list.d/deb-multimedia.org.list

We add the following lines to the file debian-multimedia.org.list:

# Debian Multimedia Repository 
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org squeeze main non-free
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org squeeze-backports main

In case of an update and you just added "squeeze-backports", simply execute the following commands to update FFmpeg:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

Then save the file (with joe type ctrl-k->ctrl-x)
and install the keyring for the just added repositories (if aksed, enter "Y"):

apt-get update
apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring

Then we update the cache changes in our working directory:

apt-get update
cd /usr/src

Now we have to install the tools:

apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl ffmpeg

For an update to ViMP 3.2.0+ you have to install exiftool:

apt-get install libimage-exiftool-perl

For ViMP <= 3.1.9 MPlayer/mencoder is needed:

apt-get install mplayer mencoder

At last copy the FFmpeg-presets to /usr/share/ffmpeg
You can download the presets here

That´s it. Now it´s time to install the hosting for ViMP.
