Problem: I recently 'updated' to Ubuntu 14.10 from Ubuntu 14.04. Since then, whenever I try to issue any command to FFMPEG, I get the following:
$ ffmpeg -i ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libass.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I've searched the internet extensively, tried recompiling FFMPEG from source using the guide here: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu and have tried reinstalling libavutil-dev all with no effect.
Can anybody suggest what might be causing FFMPEG to suddenly lose its ability to communicate with libass after my Ubuntu 14.10 update?
