I have been trying to export some event videos from my Ubuntu 14.04.3 server, I get the following message "Video Generation Failed!".
Looking at the ZoneMinder log it says "Unable to generate video, check /usr/share/zoneminder/events/1/15/09/30/17/50/00/ffmpeg.log for details" this file does not exist.
After doing some research it seems that that Ubuntu 14.04 no longer has ffmpeg.
I tried to manually install ffmpeg via apt-get, and I get the following:
apt-get install ffmpeg
Can you please advice me how to go about installing ffmpeg so that I can export the event videos.Reading package lists... Done

Package ffmpeg is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
Thanks for your time.
