I've run into a wall with this. I recently migrated a SS site that was in development to a production server. Said site has video uploading capabilities, so it required ffmpeg. I neglected to check for this before the migration, so I yum'ed it down after the migration and installed it.

Video still won't work, and it's throwing this error code: FFMPEG does not appear to be installed on your server. Code: 126

I'm hoping someone can help me shed light on this. I even set the absolute path to ffmpeg, by means of: FLV::set_ffmpeg_root("/usr/bin/ffmpeg");

Got it fixed. Don't mind this useless post. ;)

For anyone wondering what the fix was, it was missing the ffmpeg-devel package. Somehow didn't get installed.
