In this tutorial we’ll install latest version of FFmpeg 6.0 "Von Neumann", in Centos/linux/ubuntu/debian server also it will work in CWP, Cpanel and ispconfig and other centos supported control panel. I’ve gotten many requests and mails upon how to install ffmpeg and here is the guide.

FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge.

Its pretty simple to Install Latest version of FFMPEG Just follow this steps :

Ensure you’re running kernel 3.2.x and above. Check kernel version via this command “uname -sr“

Supported operating systems :

EL/Centos 7/centos 8 stream/centos 9 stream

Ubuntu 18.04/20.4/latest os

Debian 9/10/11

and linux running kernel 3.2.x or above

Move/backup currently installed FFMPEG :

mv /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg.bak
mv /usr/local/bin/ffprobe /usr/local/bin/ffprobe.bak
mv /usr/bin/ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg.bak
mv /usr/bin/ffprobe /usr/bin/ffprobe.bak
mv /usr/bin/qt-faststart /usr/bin/qt-faststart.bak
mv /usr/local/bin/qt-faststart /usr/local/bin/qt-faststart.bak

Download Latest version of FFMPEG :

cd /usr/local
rm -rf  ffmpeg
wget https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/releases/ffmpeg-release-amd64-static.tar.xz
tar xf ffmpeg-release-amd64-static.tar.xz
rm -rf ffmpeg-release-amd64-static.tar.xz
mv ffmpeg-* ffmpeg

Now create symlinks for ffmpeg and ffprobe bin file :

ln -s /usr/local/ffmpeg/ffmpeg /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg
ln -s /usr/local/ffmpeg/ffprobe /usr/local/bin/ffprobe
ln -s /usr/local/ffmpeg/qt-faststart /usr/local/bin/qt-faststart
ln -s /usr/local/ffmpeg/ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg
ln -s /usr/local/ffmpeg/ffprobe /usr/bin/ffprobe
ln -s /usr/local/ffmpeg/qt-faststart /usr/bin/qt-faststart

Change the permission for the files :

chmod 755 /usr/local/ffmpeg/ffmpeg
chmod 755 /usr/local/ffmpeg/ffprobe
chmod 755 /usr/local/ffmpeg/qt-faststart

Use this FFMPEG and FFPROBE path in your script/application :

FFMPEG path :


FFPROBE path :


Thats it you can now use FFMPEG and ffprobe Latest version, check version by typing “ffmpeg” :
