    multimedia - How do I install ffmpeg and codecs? - Ask Ubuntu

    To install it :

    If you're using Ubuntu 14.04 :

    ffmpeg was replaced in previous releases by the avconv program from the libav project.

    To install avconv you need to install the libav-tools package:

    sudo apt-get install libav-tools

    Or use PPA :

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

    If you're using Ubuntu 15.04 :

    FFmpeg Returns To The Official Ubuntu Repositories With Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet.

    Just type :

    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

    ffmpeg is used for video/audio conversion not streaming. For that you would need a plex/KODI setup.
