SABNZBD container with ffmpeg



I just pulled the linuxserver/sabnzbd container and deployed it. It works great.
I use the service in conjunction with sickchill and nzbToMedia.

nzbToMedia is run as a postprocessing script for the tv category. The software/python modules though require ffmpeg/ffprobe.

Now, I can go and install ffmpeg (apt-get update && apt-get install ffmpeg) into the container, create a new image and use that - however I would think that I am not alone in this endeavour?

Can the linuxserver/sabnzbd image be augmented to have ffmpeg?


We’ll give it some thought. But until then, the easiest way for you to add ffmpeg to the images is by mapping a local file called 90config into the /etc/cont-init.d/ folder, and put the following into that file:

#!/usr/bin/with-contenv bash

apt-get update
apt-get install ffmpeg

That way, you still use the original image and can update it as needed, but ffmpeg will always be installed during container start.

Here’s a sample docker run addition for that -v /home/youruser/90-config:/etc/cont-init.d/90-config
