I've set several places where I can get a ffmpeg binary for Android, but I cannot seem to run it. I use the . command to run shell scripts, but not ffmpeg. Is there any way at all I can run ffmpeg without rooting my device? (chmod-ing it is not allowed.) I've downloaded a binary before, and attempted to run it, but I was unable to do so because it was not marked as executable. I was not allowed to chmod it and received the following error: Unable to chmod file: operation not permitted.

  • You should edit your question and describe more details about what you have tried (commands, directories, binaries) and the problems you were facing. – Robert Sep 30 '16 at 17:44
  • Use adb to move the binary into /data/local/tmp and set appropriate permissions on that file using adb and then attempt to run binary. – Firelord Sep 30 '16 at 18:50
  • I received error: permission denied. – Nonny Moose Sep 30 '16 at 22:57
