-Scroll down to the latest static builds 32 bit or 64 bit depending on what os architecture you are running and download it. Once downloaded use WinRAR to extract the files contained then navigate to the bin folder to locate the ffmpeg file now copy and paste it into ?:\Program Files/​Serviio/​lib. Choose to replace it and restart serviio. ​+Mac here
  
-(? being your the hard drive letter ​your serviio is installed on+http://​ffmpegmac.net/​ 
 + 
 +Linux is a bit different due to varying OS's. If you feel up to the challenge, building ​your own copy of ffmpeg from source is the best way to go. http://​wiki.serviio.org/​doku.php?​id=build_ffmpeg_linux 
 +Alternatively you may be able to find precompiled builds for your flavor (fedora, centos, mint, ect) but it's best to build your own as most of the time you don't know what modules they included.

 +Scroll down to the latest static builds 32 bit or 64 bit depending on what os architecture you are running and download it. Once downloaded use 7zip or another zip program to extract the files contained then navigate to the lib folder.  
 + 
 +The default for windows is C:\Program Files\Serviio\lib\ 
 + 
 +On mac you can browse to the lib folder by opening the serviio ​app in the finder.  
 + 
 +Find the existing copy of ffmpeg 
 +ffmpeg.exe for windows) (the mac linux version ​is just called "​ffmpeg"​ 
 +and rename is to ffmpeg.bak 
 + 
 +After you have renamed the existing build, copy the file you downloaded and extracted to this location.  
 + 
 +Lastly, restart your serviio services. ​
  
 Your all done!  Your all done! 
 +
 +If you find that you are experiencing negative results from upgrading, simply rename your current copy of ffmpeg to ffmpeg.bak2 and rename ffmpeg.bak back to the original name and restart services. ​

 Serviio cant guarantee that these builds will work as expected with serviio as they will not include patches specifically designed for serviio which we may release in serviio builds at a later stage. So please make a backup of your current serviio ffmpeg by copy and pasting it to another location first. ​ Serviio cant guarantee that these builds will work as expected with serviio as they will not include patches specifically designed for serviio which we may release in serviio builds at a later stage.
