Is it possible to install ffmpeg in the Linux OS of PYNQ-Z2?

I need to use ffmpeg in the linux OS of PYNQ-Z2. Has anybody tried to install ffmpeg on the board?

I’m not sure, but I would suggest you just try it. You should be able to search and follow instructions for “how to install ffmpeg on ubuntu”.


Yes, ffmpeg most certainly will work on the PYNQ platform.

I was able to install ffmpeg with sudo apt-get install ffmpeg. However, I’m not clear if there is an appropriate kernel module available for ffmpeg (i.e. /dev/video, /dev/snd/someAudioDevice) to pull from the HDMI stream in the base overlay. I am researching that.
