Upgrading ffmpeg through 3rd party Slackbuilds. Part 1.in a 5 part tutorial on installing Kdenlive on Vectorlinux 6.0
FFmpeg is a complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video.
It includes libavcodec – the leading audio/video codec library. It is always improving with each new
release, so it pays to upgrade. In this tutorial we are going to achieve 3 things.
1. How to upgrade ffmpeg through 3rd party SlackBuilds.
2. How to edit the SlackBuild to Vectorlinux standards.
3. How to create a package that is worthy of being contributed to the Vectorlinux repository.
I think Vectorlinux needs more people building packages. So instead of just packaging
k9copy myself and uploading it to the repositories, I’m going to show how it is done
and hopefully, I’ll see someone new, upload this as a new Vectorlinux package contributor.
