Nuxeo and Ubuntu 14.04

Have anyone succeeded in installing Nuxeo via apt-get under Ubuntu 14.04? Unfortunatley ffmpeg package was removed from Ubuntu 14.04 and thus following error happens:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 nuxeo : Depends: ffmpeg-nuxeo but it is not installable or
              ffmpeg but it is not installable
     Recommends: apache2 but it is not going to be installed
     Recommends: libavcodec-extra-53 but it is not installable
 E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Unfortunately for now we don't have any alternative to ffmpeg (libav uses different command line switches and does not really keep them compatible from one version to the next).

What we do internally is compile our own ffmpeg package using the script available at

We may make one available in our apt repository at some point, but due to licensing restriction, if we do, it won't support the mp4 format.

The script that you pointed to works fine… I understand that it's not easy to add the packages to your official apt repo, but maybe a separate PPA could be created. Or add an option to install Nuxeo without support for media files - in my case it's only used for text documents and images (no audio/video content).
