I have been trying to deploy my app through Github with automatic update. I’ve run into a problem where if I try to use my app it will error out with FFmpegNotFound (One of the packages I’m using requires it). I have tried to add it to the environment variables as well as manually adding it both with ‘export’ on Bash and in ‘~/.bashrc’ but neither seem to work. Also anything I do is reset every time the system rebuilds so I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do that will fix this issue and be permanent.

The instructions on how to install I found here: https://gist.github.com/jmsaavedra/62bbcd20d40bcddf27ac
and I had to modify them because the link presented in the gist 404’ed. I found the links to download ffmpeg from: https://ffmpeg.org/download.html
Which when you click the static binaries it redirects you to https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/.
