  1. Start by updating the packages list as root or user with sudo privileges: sudo apt update.
  2. Enter the following command to install the FFmpeg package: sudo apt install ffmpeg.
  3. Verify the FFmpeg installation by printing its version: ffmpeg -version.

Before you begin you may want to see if it's already installed.

dpkg -L ffmpeg

You must have a non-root user account on your server with sudo privileges.
Why in the world do you say so?

Root account can do all you suggest. The user need not be in the sudoers file.

Just because rootless systems are common in this post-Ubuntu world, that doesn't mean it must be done that way.

Installing software requires administrative privileges. I'd word it that way. :)

And, BTW, why does it have to be a server? :rolleyes:

@furtom welcome to linux.org :)

If you hover your mouse over the OP's avatar, you will see he appeared and then since hasn't been seen since around 26-27 September last. (I am in Australia).

Talking to yourself, I am afraid.
