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:

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

  • update your package list and upgrade old packages

  • reinstall ffmpeg:

done!
