Installing avconv on the #RaspberryPi

Some of you with the camera may have been trying to install avconv by using the following:

sudo apt-get install avconv

As you have probably discovered, this does not work and it reports that it cannot find the package. (I know, it’s confusing). But it’s not actually missing, it’s just part of something else!

To do the install, do the following:

sudo apt-get install libav-tools

  1. I’m trying to use this with the new Wolfson audio card. Will updating do bad things to the Wolfson image if I do this?
