can someone direct me over a good tutorial on ffmpeg installation on Linux (specifically on Suse 10). I have to say the yum install ffmpeg option is unavaiable, as yum isn't even present on this Linux box.

Furthermore, I have to install a specified set of encoders/decoders for ffmpeg (MPEG1, MP4, AVI, FLV, MOV, WMV, SWF, FLA) with support for high-definition video (up to Full HD) and to install all that stuff in a specific location. So, have you got any guide for this task ?

Get it from GWDG's FTP site.

But won't it use rpm dependencies that I will, in turn, have to install ? – Riduidel Dec 2 '10 at 10:38
