How to Install Flvtool++


This article will guide you through the steps of installing Flvtool++ on your server. Clip-Bucket, for example, has the option to use Flvtool++ instead of Flvtool2. If I were asked which one was better, I would say Flvtool++. I am not responsible for any damage you may cause to your server, not because the commands I give you here are wrong, but because of an error from your part.

You will need SSH access.

Difficulty level: Medium (Easy if you have Linux commands knowledge)

NOTE: If you do not have Linux commands and terminal knowledge, I recommend you get someone to do it for you to assure you no errors will be made. YOU CAN STILL DO IT YOURSELF; IT IS SIMPLY A COPY-PASTE OF COMMANDS.

1. Open a terminal/konsole

2. Connect via SSH to your server. (Learn how to connect via SSH in my other article)

3. Login as root.

4. Execute the following commands, one by one.

yum install wget boost-devel gcc gcc-c++ -y
rpm -ivh
mkdir flvtool++
cd flvtool++
tar zxf flvtool++.tar.gz
mv flvtool++ /usr/local/bin

And guess what? You are ready! Flvtool++ has been installed in /usr/local/bin/flvtool++ . Any problem you may have during the installation, please let me know, and I will be more than glad to assist you!

Best Regards,

    Kobyn: wget the rpm file, then run rpm -vh on the local rpm file. That worked for me.
