Install FFmpeg 2.2.4 in Ubuntu 14.04

FFmpeg 2.2.4 is a complete cross-platform solution, video decoding and encoding system on Linux (and in computing in general) that enables users to easily ncode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play audio and video contents.

The ffmpeg tool is a command line program that can be used to encode from one of many dozen codecs/formats into a similar number of other formats. The libraries from the project are available for developers to use in their own programs to provide video codecs, formats, devices, filters, scaling, and post-processing.

The latest version of FFMpeg 2.2.4 is now available in the Repository for installation and it comes with a lot of new features, such as HNM version 4 demuxer and video decoder, Live HDS muxer, a complete Voxware MetaSound decoder, WebP encoding via libwebp, VP8 in Ogg demuxing, libx265 encoder, and more.
