If you are looking to add video encoding or video streaming feature on your website, you should set up your server accordingly. Most of the time you may just need to have FFmpeg installed on your server, but if you are planning to run video sharing service like Vimeo or YouTube, you should also have other modules/extension installed on your Server.
Most of the ready to run video sharing scripts or YouTube clone scripts require these modules and extensions required on the Server.
Install FFmpeg, flvtool2, mp4box, and ImageMagick on CentOS7
CentOS 7 requires a tweak to the process I’d used for CentOS 6. The links below are generally suitable for EL7.
Installing FFmpeg on CentOS 7
If you don’t have the EPEL repo installed already:
sudo yum -y install epel-release
Import a repo from Nux :
sudo rpm --import http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro sudo rpm -Uvh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-5.el7.nux.noarch.rpm
Install FFmpeg from this repo:
sudo yum -y install ffmpeg ffmpeg-devel
Confirm it’s working:
Install flvtool2 on CentOS 7
This is easiest to grab via RubyGems.
Install Ruby and RubyGems
yum install -y ruby rubygems
And then it’s a simple gem install:
gem install flvtool2
And we’re done.
Install mp4box (GPAC) on CentOS 7
This one is quite easy on CentOS 7:
yum install -y gpac mediainfo
Install ImageMagick on CentOS 7
This package is much more common, so the install is also more straightforward.
Install any prerequisites:
yum install -y gcc php-devel php-pear
Install the package itself:
yum install -y ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel
Install it in PHP:
pecl install imagick echo "extension=imagick.so" > /etc/php.d/imagick.ini
Last, but not least:
service httpd restart
