I am using Zoomfactory with Joomla to show videos. I would really like to have FFmpeg installed to create the thumbnails but all my searches on this forum give me instructions with assumption that I already know how to complile the software through the shell to /usr/bin which I don’t. Is there a more comprehensive set of instruction for installing this software for someone with a more rudimentary knowledge of Unix commandline?

thank you,
