I need to use the new
xfade option of
FFmpeg which was added about a week ago. My FFmpeg installation on the server ( Ubuntu 18.04.2 ) was about 2 months ago, so I need to update it as I'm getting the following issue:
No such filter: xfade
So, I've tried to update FFmpeg with the following options
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade ffmpeg
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
Both versions say that
ffmpeg is already the newest version (7:3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 129 not upgraded
Also, I can see some differences in the
ffmpeg -version output from my local and from server.
As you can see, on the local it shows
ffmpeg version git-2020-02-03-... but on the server it shows
ffmpeg version 3.4.6-0ubuntu0.18.04.1
So, for having
xfade option on my server as well I need to update the FFmpeg to the latest ( GIT ) version? What else can I try?
