Install mp4box on centos

Google behaved rather strangely today when I wanted to see how to install "Mp4Box". Yum search gave naught, so I decided to google this. On the hindsight maybe I needed better yum search fu for this.

As I was searching through the ways of installing MP4Box on Fedora / Centos I came up with installation instructions that asked me to build the application from source. Even the official website:  https://gpac.wp.imt.fr/mp4box/ provides no explanation on how to do it. They just have the official windows, debian and ios installers. It also offers an explanation to build from source on other linux-es.

While all this confusion is going round, the dude who had the requirement to simple and install gpac, since that is the name of the project! Well, guess what, it worked. So, here's how you install MP4Box on Fedora or CentOS :

sudo yum install gpac

Oh and btw, it can be found in the "rpmfusion-free" repository.
