Linux Mint missing ffmpeg solution to install from Ubuntu PPA

This is very annoying that ffmpeg is missing from Linux Mint!  They have ffmpeg2theora which is a totally different codec and does not work as ffmpeg does at all (it is basically totally different).

However on Linux Mint 17 I was able to use a Ubuntu PPA and sucessfully install ffmpeg!

https://launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/trusty-media

Adding this PPA to your system

You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by adding ppa:mc3man/trusty-media to your system's Software Sources. (Read about installing)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
sudo apt-get update

Solution Now Install ffmpeg!
      

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
