comment Ffmpeg 2.5.2 executable not replacing existing version
I'm not sure why it was not persistent for you. Also, I don't know why ~/bin doesn't seem to be in the $PATH by default since it's already in ~/.profile last I checked, but that was a while ago since I'm not personally using Ubuntu. Anyway, if you found a solution you can provide it as an answer.

If you log out of your current desktop environment session and then log in is the behavior persistent?

Try running . ~/.profile, then hash -r, then ffmpeg.

Please show the output of echo $PATH, ls ~/bin, and hash. Are you using the same user account that you used to compile?

comment VLC unable to play wmv
Yeah, it can be confusing; especially when the fork used names (ffmpeg, libav, libraries, etc) already used by FFmpeg.

comment VLC unable to play wmv
FFmpeg was not removed from Debian because of bugs, but because the package maintainer is one of the former FFmpeg developers who switched to the Libav fork and decided to force his agenda on the users.

comment VLC unable to play wmv
@Kevin Correct. ffmpeg is not provided by libav-tools. Can you provide a short sample input file so we can attempt to duplicate this issue?

"Does not work" is impossible to provide help. Please provide detailed information explaining what exactly does not work.

comment ffmpeg concatinate multiple videos in Ubuntu
Unfortunately the configuration options and other important information about your build was omitted from your output. Also, the info about each input is still missing.

Please include the complete ffmpeg console output from your command, and also include the console output from: ffmpeg -n -i preroll.mp4 -i xx.mp4 -i postroll.mp4.

revised How to specify flac compression level when converting with avconv?
this has nothing to do with ffmpeg; avconv and ffmpeg tags should generally be separate

comment How to install avconv with libfdk_aac on Ubuntu 14.04?
Why not just follow the guide you linked to and use ffmpeg with libfdk_aac? If you're doing a significant amount of encoding you should reconsider using libfdk_aac since aac (the native AAC encoder), and libvo_aacenc are poor comparatively. See FFmpeg AAC Audio Encoding Guide (some info within will not apply to avconv).
