I have a script that splits a given video vertically. Basically it looks like
ffmpeg -y -i input.avi -filter:v crop=480:360:0:0 output.avi
It worked all well on my local machine. But when I uploaded to the server, which is running an older version of FFmpeg on Ubuntu 12.04, it threw this error:
Unrecognized option 'filter:v'
Updating FFmpeg (or libavfilter, perhaps) will solve this error.
sudo apt-get remove ffmpeg sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
