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.
