Integrating with Laravel Packages:
After installing FFmpeg, you can use it with Spatie's Laravel MediaLibrary for handling media in a Laravel application. This package can leverage FFmpeg to convert videos to different formats or generate thumbnails.
For more advanced video processing in Laravel, integrate FFmpeg with ProtoneMedia's Laravel FFmpeg. This package provides a fluent interface to FFmpeg and allows for complex video and audio processing directly within a Laravel application.
