I was trying to crop some video files in Ubuntu for my project. I read some article about ffmpeg that can be used to crop and edit the images and videos using Gnu/Linux machines especially in Ubuntu.
So I opened a terminal and tried to install ffmpeg.
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
Oops! there is no package like that. Its showing me a message that
Package 'ffmpeg' has no installation candidate
Also I searched the repositories for ffmpeg.
sudo apt-cache search ffmpeg
Still I couldn't find ffmpeg in the list of returned results.
After a long search on Internet, I found a lovely ppa from launchpad, mc3man/trusty-media that contain ffmpeg.
I have added that ppa to my system.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
Updated the repository.
sudo apt-get update
Then installed ffpmeg and gstreamer plugin
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
