Installing more updated version of ffmpeg on Debian 5 (Lenny)‏

Problem: 
my ffmpeg chain-of-command used in my mp3 to Youtube uploader didn’t work with some error. Something like this:

error, non monotone timestamps 1 >= 0

I’m trying to ‘place’ the site on a Debian 5 (Lenny) server. I’m using ffmpeg from Debian 5 repository (with no additional repo added).
Cause:
the ffmpeg version installed is ‘too old‘, it has bugs that casing the conversion fail.

Solution: 
get the most updated version of ffmpeg for Debian 5 (Lenny)
You need to add Debian-multimedia repository into your /etc/apt/sources.list

dpkg -i debian-multimedia-keyring_2010.12.26_all.deb
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable main non-free
  • update your package list and upgrade old packages
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
  • reinstall ffmpeg:
apt-get install ffmpeg

done!
