On my stack, on digitalocean, i have Ubuntu (13, and i’m deploying a small work that need avconv (former ffmpeg).
I need to convert from WMV to MP4 files and i was getting Unknown encoder ‘libx264’ error.
This is how i’v added video encoder libx264 to my avcodec.
apt-get update apt-get install libavcodec-extra-53
