Building and Packaging FFmpeg on Solaris 11.4

FFmpeg is a suite of libraries and programs for handling video, audio and for a Solaris 11 desktop user it is required for video in your Firefox. At the moment it does not come with Solaris you will need to build it yourself.

This guide will take you through building FFmpeg, creating a Package and then installing it. There has been a recent blog entry about  building Opensource on Solaris (by Chris Beal), which use the as the base, but I will not follow this example at this time. May be at a later date.
