FFmpeg is now available for testing in ClearOS 7. NOTE: the packages are not in the final repos and will be moved around soon. You have been warned.
yum install ffmpeg
If that does not work, the neccessary packages might not yet be in the right place... If so, try:
yum install ffmpeg --enablerepo=clearos-centos,clearos-epel
Compared to the FFmpeg version that is found in ClearOS 6 this version is MUCH MUCH improved and feature rich:
First of all, this is the 2.7.2 release with everything that goes with it (FFmpeg will have a 2.8 release in about 1 hour, so I have some catch up to do pretty soon...).
Read the FFmpeg changelog here: FFmpeg Changelog
Then, compared to ClearOS 6, the whole build have been reworked with a lot of new libs added and some obsolete ones deleted. Below you find some examples of new external libs added:
libass (used for subtitles)
gnutls (to enable https streaming etc)
x265 (to enable encoding of HEVC/h265)
vid.stab (this one is really cool, I will try to do a separate post: You use it to fix shaky videos)
Edit: Changed repos as the packages now should have moved a bit...
