How to install the transcoding tools on Debian 6 "Squeeze"?
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)
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:
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 install deb-multimedia-keyring
Then we update the cache changes in our working directory:
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.
