Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the popular open-source, multi-platform audio and video encoding tool FFmpeg has been updated to FFmpeg 2.0.2. Since it is only a maintenance version, it comes only with bugfixes. For more information, see the official changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install FFmpeg 2.0.2 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Pear OS 8.
Because it is available via PPA, installing FFmpeg 2.0.2 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Pear OS is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the ffmpeg package. Like this:
