That’s what I suspected, so I downloaded the ffmpeg package from NoMachine.com/opensource and did my best to compile it (./configure && make wasn’t working), to no avail…

$ ls -l /usr/NX/lib/libav*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2366788 oct 14 22:40 /usr/NX/lib/libavcodec.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2366788 oct 14 22:40 /usr/NX/lib/libavcodec.so.54
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  484216 oct 14 22:41 /usr/NX/lib/libavutil.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  484216 oct 14 22:41 /usr/NX/lib/libavutil.so.51

but it’s very likely I didn’t compile it right O:-)

As far as I see, Ubuntu 14.10 does indeed pull libavcodec56 (libavcodec54 is obsoleted):

# apt-get install libavcodec54
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Package libavcodec54 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package ‘libavcodec54’ has no installation candidate

Well, it’s not a stopper for me, so let’s have some patience 🙂
