    Not sure if this is the best place for this post but I need to install ffmpeg on out ISPConfig/CentOS server

    I've found this command line code to install ffmpeg
    yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel ffmpeg-libpostproc flash-plugin mplayer mplayer-gui mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly mencoder
    But this set of yum installs look more suitable for a desktop based system and not a server. For instance I dont think I need the mplayer skins and fonts etc, and I'm not sure about gstreamer.

    Also I dont know If this will work with ISPConfig and if or how the sites work or if there is anything I need to do in ISPConfig for this to work on a per-site basis

    any help appreciated

    Running ffmpeg on a webserver is likely to use a lot of resources while converting files.
    We've however done it on some machines where the customer runs video-hosting sites.

    Used debian with apt-get instead though.

    Was that all that you had to do to get it to work?
