How do I know if any of the following items are installed on dreamhosts servers? I am not able to install them myself because of not having root access.

- LAME MP3 Encoder
- Libogg + Libvorbis
- Mencoder and also Mplayer
- FFMpeg-PHP

None of those are presently installed, by default, fro generall use on DreamHost. ffmpeg itself *is* installed and available for use.

Each of those *can* be installed in your own user space without the need for root access, but doing so is considered by most to be "less than trivial".

There are many posts in these forums about this; maybe searching for a reading through those will give you a better idea of what is involved. Wink

And don't forget that the shared servers have "Process Killers" that kill processes that are less than "shared hosting" friendly. This may make conversions very painful.

And if you fire it up on my server I'll hunt you down and teach your cat to sit on your face.
