stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

Gabriella Han
Hi,

I have been trying to install ffmpeg version 3 on my machine (which is
running Ubuntu 16.04). To do so I have been using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathon/ffmpeg-3 -y
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install ffmpeg -y

However, when I run ffmpeg -version I always get:

ffmpeg version 2.8.15-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 Copyright (c) 2000-2018 the FFmpeg
developers

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling in many different ways,
restarting my machine, etc. I also consulted with someone who has
experience in Linux and I can't seem to figure out the issue.

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Gabby

I hate debian and its derivatives but that looks to me like ffmpeg 2.8
so I don't know why you're surprised.  You probably need to explicitly
ask for version 3 with a package like "ffmpeg3" or "ffmpeg-3" on this
out-dated thing.

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

Gabriella Han
Yes. I noticed that that was happening so I’m not surprised it is version
2.8.15 but I wasn’t sure why version 3 was not downloading despite that I
was explicitly specifying it. Is it because ffmpeg version 3 is not
supported on Ubuntu 16.04?

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

Peter B.


I'm not sure if ffmpeg-user is actually the right place for this, since
it's a packaging issue.
Plus: I cannot reproduce your problem (Xubuntu 16.04.3, 64bit).

I guess you've got a typo: "jonathon" vs "jonathonf"?

----------------
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathon/ffmpeg-3
----------------
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~jonathon/ubuntu/ffmpeg-3'.
The user named '~jonathon' does not have any PPA
----------------
(Strange, that your command line output says "Launchpad PPA for J
Fernyhough  imported" though.)


Please try with "jonathonf" [1]:
----------------
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/ffmpeg-3
sudo apt update
----------------

Don't use "-y" so you actually see what happens ;)

What comes up with "$ apt show ffmpeg"?
In my case (after adding jonathonf's PPA), I get v3.4.4-1 as expected:

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

I actually checked my command line history and I did use the correct
command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/ffmpeg-3

but I missed the "f" when I typed it in my email.

However, I removed and reinstalled ffmpeg without the -y option. When I run
apt show ffmpeg the output is:

a mailing list or forum of your distribution?

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

In reply to this post by Reindl Harald
Hi,

That's great. Then could you provide me with instructions to install a
recent working version of ffmpeg with Ubuntu 16.04? I was only installing
an outdated distribution because I could not find such instructions on the
official ffmpeg website.

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

Gabriella Han
Thanks. It still downloads ffmpeg version 2.8.15 even after I removed
ffmpeg and installed with the instructions in the Compilation Guide. When I
try to run sudo apt-get install ffmpeg again, I get:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
ffmpeg is already the newest version (7:2.8.15-0ubuntu0.16.04.1).
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer
required:
  apt-clone archdetect-deb containerd dmeventd dmraid dpkg-repack
  gir1.2-timezonemap-1.0 gir1.2-xkl-1.0 grub-common kpartx kpartx-boot
  libappstream3 libdbusmenu-gtk4 libdebian-installer4
libdevmapper-event1.02.1
  libdmraid1.0.0.rc16 liblockfile-bin liblockfile1 liblvm2app2.2
  liblvm2cmd2.02 libmircommon5 libparted-fs-resize0 libqmi-glib1 libqpdf17
  libreadline5 lockfile-progs lvm2 os-prober pmount python3-icu python3-pam
  rdate runc snapd-login-service ubiquity-casper ubiquity-ubuntu-artwork
  ubuntu-core-launcher
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

This is odd because 2.8.15 is not the newest version to my understanding.

If you only want to use the executables (not the libraries) you might
also try the "static builds":
https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/

I'm quite happily using them alongside Debian/Ubuntu's repo versions.
Just unpack them to e.g. /opt/ffmpeg and then symlink ffmpeg, ffprobe,
etc into /usr/bin/ under a different name.
For example:

$ ln -s /opt/ffmpeg/ffmpeg-4.1.3/ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg-4


Kind regards,
Pb

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

I was simply running the command again to show that it was stating that
2.8.15 is the newest version. I know it is already installed. I don’t
appreciate being told what I do and do not understand. I will seek help
elsewhere. Thank you.

fact is that "It still downloads ffmpeg version 2.8.15 even after I
removed ffmpeg and installed with the instructions in the Compilation
Guide" is bullshit and shows what you understand or not

when build from source apt/dnf/yum are out of game at all

Re: stuck on ffmpeg version 2.8.15

Gabriella Han
From the Compilation guide:
*Note:* FFmpeg is part of the Ubuntu packages and can be installed via apt-get
install ffmpeg. You may still wish to compile if you want the latest
version, experience a bug, or want to customize your build, and it will not
interfere with the ffmpeg package in the repository.

These are the instructions I was referring to. I simply installed again
with apt-get install ffmpeg. Perhaps it was a mistake to say "download" vs
"install." Either way, I don't see what is so hard to understand about the
above instructions. I hope in the future you can speak to people looking
for help in a more respectful manner.

Best of Luck.

jesus christ - you are not happy with 2.8.15 and hence it's illogical
bullshit go to a compilation guide and try the fifth time with "apt-get"

how do you imagine that the version in the repo magically changed just
because you started reading some website?

We can try to help here, but this indeed looks like an issue with
handling repositories. (I'm somewhat lost with Debian derivatives
myself.)

Note that a much more up-to-date repo exists: "ffmpeg-4" (obviously):
ppa:jonathonf/ffmpeg-4

I second your (Peter's) "static builds" suggestion.
