FAQ Installation and First steps

Setting the transcoding tool paths

Editions: Community, Professional, Enterprise, Enterprise Ultimate, Corporate
Versions: all

You only need to do this, if the transcoding tools have not been installed via a package, but have been compiled by yourself!

Transcoding will not work before you set the correct paths within the ViMP backend configuration.
Login as an administrator and go to Administration -> Configuration -> Transcoder

and enter the absolute paths to the transcoding tools:


ToolValue / Path
mencoder /usr/local/bin/mencoder
mplayer /usr/local/bin/mplayer
ffmpeg /usr/bin/ffmpeg
flvtool2 /usr/bin/flvtool2


Without setting the correct paths transcoding will not work.
