FFmpeg on Debian Jessie 8

How to install ffmpeg on Debian Jessie 8

Sadly ffmpeg is not available through the ordinary repos. So you need to add the source yourself.

ffmpeg is available as a backport, previously it worked using deb-multimedia, but that creates dependency problems.

# sudo echo deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org testing main non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list

sudo echo  deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
