Exclamation Need some help installing stuff... Having a hard time!

I've got this applocation that is needing some extra files installed.
OS is Debian Sarge with Apache2

1.) FFmpeg (http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu)
2.) FFmpeg-PHP (http://ffmpeg-php.sourceforge.net)
3.) Mplayer + Mencoder (http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html )
4.) flv2tool (http://inlet-media.de/flvtool2)
5.) LAME MP3 Encoder
6.) Libogg + Libvorbis (http://www.xiph.org/downloads)
I'm stuck at 1.)
All I can find is a svn file??
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
What's a svn file, and how do I install it?

apt-cache search ffmpeg, does show files, but installing the file ffmpeg (and files that are related to it) step 2 will complain about missing stuff in ffmpeg.
checking for ffmpeg libavcodec.so... configure: error: ffmpeg share libraries not found. Make sure you've built ffmpeg as shared libs using the --enable-shared option
I guess the apt-get install ffmpeg and related files are missing stuff

step 3, 4, 5 and 6 I did not try.. (1st I want to get step 1 and 2 done)

Anyone here who can take me by the hand and guide me how to get ffmpeg and ffmpeg-PHP installed/working?

Thank you!

svn is short for Subversion, it's a version control management system, similar to CVS. For example, we use svn for ISPConfig development. Have a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svn

Install svn like this:
apt-get install svn
and then run
svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk ffmpeg
and it will get you the latest ffmpeg files to your hard disk, and you can go on installing ffmpeg.
