    Question Trying to Install ffmpeg [12.1]

    I have downloaded and extracted the latest version of ffmpeg from the website ffmpeg.org. I extract the .tar file to /home/russell/bin/local. Then, following the directions in the install file, I run "./configure" from bash (as super user). I get the following error (I've tried this with three different builds and I get the same error for all):

    yasm not found, use --disable-yasm for a crippled build

    If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
    version from Git. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
    ffmpeg-user@ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
    Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
    solving the problem.


    I've thought about running "./configure --disable-yasm" as suggested, but I'm scared of that "crippled build" part

    Anyone out there install ffmpeg successfully on 12.1? Any suggestions would are welcome and appreciated! If anyone has step-by-step instructions, that would be super appreciated!!

    No, run it as user. You only run as root the "make install" phase.

    We simply install it from packman.

    I looked at the Packman website and there was nothing for 12.1 shown. So, I tried a manual install. But, I decided to try it anyway. And it seems to be working fine.

    Thanks!

    A simple search for ffmpeg on the packman packager site gives this hit: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket ffmpeg
