> I'm new here and I've got a suggestion that I should write here my question. Is it possible to prepare package of actual version of ffmpeg with libx264? I have a Centos 5 OS on my VPS and when I do yum install ffmpeg it downloads version from 2007 year (!).
What fun! CentOS 5 and RHEL 5 are "production" systems, and will always 
significantly lack behind leading edge systems like Fedora in a lot of 
components. So porting to it can be a lot of educational fun in 
backwards compatibility.

Yes, posting your errors and perhaps your .spec files would be helpful 
to diagnosis. The SRPM's at Dag's RPMforge epository are, indeed, 
and x264-0.0.0-0.4.20070529.rf.src.rpm 
I'd suggest updating from source package, editing the .spec file, 
recompiling it, etc.

For example, it looks like x264 is now published via git, and has no 
published tags in the public repository. You'll need to make some kind 
reference to a particular version for stability:
