Welcome! These 64-bit static builds of FFmpeg for Linux 2.6.32+/3.x.x are the easiest way to get the latest version running on your server or workstation. Support for all the external libs listed below are built into the binaries, just unpack the archive and run ./ffmpeg
The archive includes ffmpeg, ffmpeg-10bit, ffprobe, qt-faststart, and all the man pages in both text and pdf format. Note: ffmpeg-10bit is built with 10-bit H.264 encoding support; Only the git build includes libx265 support due to its rapid development.
The git build below is recommended, however, for those that need the latest FFmpeg release:
