How to check whether FFMPEG is enabled in my server or not? [Updated May 2019]

Write this simple code in any .php file and test it


$ffmpeg = trim(shell_exec(‘which ffmpeg’)); // or better yet:
$ffmpeg = trim(shell_exec(‘type -P ffmpeg’));

if (empty($ffmpeg))
die(‘ffmpeg not available’);

shell_exec($ffmpeg . ‘ -i …’);?>

If it returns ‘FFmpeg not available‘ then it is not enabled in your server.

Just for testing purposes i have created a test.php file and inserted these code
