You should use the latest version available from the git master branch. The easiest method is to download it:

Thank you

I have an older machine so under the git build it looks like I should download the x86 build. However, it looks like release 3.2.4 is the later version. Advice please.

Releases are for distributors. General users are recommended to use a git build which is always more up to date that a release.

You can use uname to determine if you should use x86 or x86_64:
Code: Select all
$ uname -m
x86_64

Once you download and extract the ffmpeg binary you can move it to /usr/local/bin (or ~/bin if you lack root or superuser permissions).

Thank you

uname -m

i686

Seems odd!

I believe that I should use the 32 bit version (only 1 GB RAM; old processor)

It looks like I should download x86 build, just under git: gb8a.......................

Best wishes.

Ps. I do not have git installed - does this matter regarding the ffmpeg build?

Yes, use the x86 version.

No, you don't need git to be installed.
