How to install qt-faststart FFmpeg plugin

Please note that ffmpeg is already installed on the server so I am compiling qt-faststart with ffmpeg only.

Go to the below path

cd /usr/local/src

svn checkout svn:// ffmpeg

If you are getting below timeout error message then please disable the firewall for installation.

svn: Can’t connect to host ‘’ : Connection time out.

Then go to the ffmpeg folder and compile ffmpeg with qt-faststart

cd ffmpeg



make test

make tools/qt-faststart

cp -a tools/qt-faststart /usr/bin/

Now check where qt-faststart is installed.

root@server [~/ffmpeg]#which qt-faststart
