Hello, I am trying to implement a tube website and I'd like to know if it's possible to install and use ffmpeg. If so, how can I do this? Is there any tutorial that can teach this? Thank you very much. :rolleyes:

I wouldn't recommend it because it usually results in you ending up suspended for high load. Our servers don't really have the resources to be doing video conversions.

My website is only for test. I will not upload or allow users to upload a lot of videos. Even so, is it impossible?

It's actually already installed if you're on Tommy, there's just no good way to use it since we don't allow shell access or exec().

 

Python and the like may be able to use it, but I'm not familiar with those languages.

I am on Ricky. Do you mean then I can't use shell access or exec()?

Correct. No shell access. No exec() or related functions in PHP. All of them are disabled and will throw an error if you try. Python may still be able to run it though...I've never tried.

 

Also, I'm not sure if ffmpeg is even installed on Ricky. I only know its on Tommy...

Oh, thanks. I will study more about Python.
