    Hi,

    your description doesn’t work (anymore?). The problem is, ppa:samrog131/ppa does not contain ffmpeg but ffmpeg-real. It is probably still ffmpeg but since it has a different name it won’t install with ‘sudo apt-get install ffmpeg’. You have to type ‘sudo apt-get install ffmpeg-real’ to install it.
    Still, I doubt software using ffmpeg will use the new ffmpeg-real because they will all look for ffmpeg.

    How do I fix this?
