How to install the transcoding tools on Debian 7 "Wheezy"?
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 wheezy main non-free
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org wheezy-backports main
Then save the file (with joe, ctrl-k->ctrl-x) and install the keyring for the previously added repositories (if asked, enter "Y"):
apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
Next, 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
VIMP >=2.7 can use the included presets. If you use an older version, don´t forget to 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.
