comment How to make ffmpeg executable everywhere?
The guide installs to ~/bin, and this directory is already in the $PATH, so no need to edit the $PATH. See my answer for more details.

revised Error: [matroska,webm @ XXXXX ] max_analyze_duration reached
formatting. tag cleanup: avconv is not ffmpeg and tags should not be mixed unless the issue exists in both (the tag refers to ffmpeg from FFmpeg, not fake ffmpeg form Libav).

comment Merge multiple webm files using avconv
Please download a recent ffmpeg build and then show some info about your inputs. It will help me provide an answer, and avconv doesn't have the functionality of what I'm going to suggest. Include the full output of: ffmpeg -i input0.webm -i input1.webm -i input2.webm, etc.

comment Merge multiple webm files using avconv
The fake ffmpeg from Libav is what was deprecated for avconv; not ffmpeg from FFmpeg. Unfortunately the maintainer refused to clarify that in the message resulting in confused users (and some think it was the intended effect).

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.
