    Hi, everyone

    I want to ask for help…

    How install MediaPress Local Transcoder?

    I have already installed FFmpeg v4.2.2, Composer v1.10.5 , php-ffmpeg/php-ffmpeg v0.16 and php-ffmpeg/extras v0.3.1

    But backgroud show : Transcoder needs FFMPEG. You don’t seem to have it installed.

    Transcoder Status: queued.

    how can I do the next step..

    Hello Pianohous,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. You are getting this notice because of plugin unable to find “FFmpeg” package on your server. Please let me know what kind of web hosting you are on. Is it shared or individual or you are testing with a local server. Please try the following command if you have access to the terminal

    which ffmpeg 2>/dev/null

    We use this command to check the existence of the FFmpeg. Please let me know what you get.

    Hi, Ravi

    Thanks for your replay.

    It’s a individual server : Linux version 3.10.0-1062.18.1.el7.x86_64 (mockbuild@kbuilder.bsys.centos.org) (gcc version 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-39) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Tue Mar 17 23:49:17 UTC 2020

    and ” which ffmpeg 2>/dev/null ” –>


    ffmpeg -version
    ffmpeg version N-97611-g5767a2e Copyright (c) 2000-2020 the FFmpeg developers
    built with gcc 9.1.0 (GCC)

    We will suggest to hire someone to troubleshoot it for you. We do not provide support for MPP Local transcoder as a lot depends on server and not on the code.

    The code part is only responsible for executing ffmpeg binary.

    Some of the issues that might cause it:-
    – Can your www-data(or user under which web server runs) is capable of running the ffmpeg process?
    – If you are on ubuntu, Please make sure that FFMPEG was not installed via SNAp. snap installed packages are restricted. I will suggest uninstalling and then installing via apt

    Please check the last 2, if that does not solve your issue, You will need someone to treoubleshoot it on your server.
