Installing

Hello I was wondering if I’d be able to install things like FMMPEG on your web hosting plan.

You can try, but I haven’t seen someone have success yet.

So,
Noone you’ve seen has had it installed on the server?
But the wiki says that it had been installed.
=/.
Thankyou anyways.

A long-term search here in the forums doesn’t show much success with ffmpeg.

I just found a a way to install it.
Get a binary that has already been compiled then us php exec() with a script in order to run it.

Haven’t tested it but it will probably work.

Also, in case it is too server intensive,
is there any alternatives I can use that are located on the site, that supports a php script for mass conversion?
