I am using a shared hosting and have access to the cpanel for my website. It is hosted on a linux server and has global php and mysql installed.

I would like to install and use ffmpeg-php on my server. Could not find any steps how I could do it (without SSH access)

Can someone please help me out?

This question appears to be off-topic because it concerns the use of shared web hosting by end users or resellers, rather than the administration of web hosting. – Jenny D Jun 28 '13 at 7:58

You can't, simple as that

FFMPEG and FFMPEG-PHP require quite a few custom changes so there's no way to install it without root SSH access to your server.

If your web-host is decent, if you get in touch with them they might be able to install it on a managed dedicated server or VPS but I would doubt they would install it on shared hosting.
