What happens if you try


apt-get instasll ffmpeg gnome

You could as well use apt-cache to find out dependencies about ffmpeg...

Here's what came up:

gnome is already the newest version.
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ffmpeg : Depends: libavdevice52 (>= 5:0.6.1+svn20101128) but it is not going to be installed
gnome : Depends: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg (>= 0.10.10) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: gnome-office (= 1:2.30+7) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

I've checked the repos you listed and gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg and ffmpeg are provided in both of them. What is happening here (probably) is that you installed something from one repo and later on you added a new one.

One thing that might solve this is using the repo with the most updated version *first* (higher/first in the config file). "apt-get install repo/ffmpeg" might work as well.

You could try removing gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg and install it again (for that you'll need to use the -force option)

It's kinda late right now so I'll come back tomorrow to check if you solved the issue!

That was already decided, the purpose of this thread is to figure out why the installation of ffmpeg is stating it would cause gnome to be removed. I think Marc is on the right track to help the OP resolve his issue.

I'm still wondering what the output of apt-get -s remove gnome would be. Gnome app in Debian is a macro.
