The latest version (0.7.5) includes a Debian package, but it is built/configured for Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr)/Linux Mint 17. Nevertheless, you can install it in Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) by installing a few dependent packages from Ubuntu 14.04.

Download the amd64 architecture versions of the following packages from Ubuntu 14.04:

Download FFmpegYAG from the Sourceforge site.

Copy all of the downloaded Debian packages into an empty directory (such as ffmpegyag).

In the terminal navigate to the directory where you saved all of the files (e.g., ffmpegyag) and run this command:

sudo gdebi *.deb

You will be prompted to install the various packages and choose ‘Y’ for each prompt.

After completing the installation, you should now have a FFmpegYAG menu item in the Multimedia Ubuntu menu.
