AAC encoding not included in 10.04 ffmpeg

As a reminder, the Lucid or Ubuntu 10.04 does not have AAC decoding support. This means I cant convert FLV (Youtube) movies into a format that the Android can use.

Solution, is to use the Mediabuntu packages as informed by Ubuntu Forums.

In a nut shell, remove existing ffmpeg and use the Mediabuntu repo to download a fixed version of FFMPEG. Some of the other version of Ubuntu is fine, and no need to follow this step.

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/`lsb_release -cs`.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && sudo apt-get -q update && sudo apt-get --yes -q --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get -q update

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg libavcodec-extra-52
