[FFmpeg-user] Need help with ffmpeg library installation on RHEL5

Hi Reindl Harald,

I tried installing locally after downloaded rpm package from the site which returned me with the error list I shared in the email. Then I tried installing the dependent library one by one but I reached to a stage where libraries were interdependent which I could not resolve. Just to add, I am not a regular user of Linux machines so do not have much idea how the things works. Even I tried "yum install ffmpeg" option but that also resulted in errors.

Please help me with some simple steps to install this library.

I tried downloading each dependent library one by one and tried installing manually them but some libraries in turn showing dependencies on other libraries which I am not able to resolve. Please find below the error log when I tried installing the rpm present at above location:

that above installs the RPMFUSION REPO and then you type "yum install ffmpeg" as already explained - STOP to start your quotes with "error: 
Failed dependencies:" which forces us TO GUESS what you really did

i still assume you try to install local downloaded rpm packages
