# Configuring Transcoder

The only configuration for Transcoder is in the config.php file, which is a multi-environment friendly way to store the default settings. Don't edit this file, instead copy it to craft/config as transcoder.php and make your changes there.

You will also need ffmpeg installed for Transcoder to work. On Ubuntu 16.04, you can do just:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

To install ffmpeg on Centos 6/7, you can follow the guide How to Install FFmpeg on CentOS

If you have managed hosting, contact your sysadmin to get ffmpeg installed.
