    Any reasons why the php5-ffmpeg is not available anymore? I am trying to install it and get the following error:

    # apt-get install php5-ffmpeg
    Reading package lists… Done

    Reading state information… Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    php5-ffmpeg : Depends: phpapi-20100525
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    When try to install php55 (apt-get install php5) apt will install apache. But as I am using nginx I think I don’t get the point why it’s trying to do so. Is there any cause?

    It’s trying to install “apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils apache2.2-bin apache2.2-common libapache2-mod-php5” – any hint to avoid that?

    sorry, i have to ask a question. i just realized that your repository also contains mysql. would this conflict in case I have mariadb installed or percona db? I do not know if they are compiled against each other. ideally I can use your repository but keep maria/perconadb?
    thanks very much!
