You might have to install from source. To do this, you'll need yasm.

yum install yasm

then you'll want to wget the file here:

You can unzip it as such: tar -vxjf ./ffmpeg-snapshot.tar.bz2

then finally make it as described here:

Type ./configure to create the configuration. A list of configure options is printed by running configure --help.

configure can be launched from a directory different from the FFmpeg sources to build the objects out of tree. To do this, use an absolute path when launching configure, e.g. /ffmpegdir/ffmpeg/configure.

Then type make to build FFmpeg. GNU Make 3.81 or later is required.

Type make install to install all binaries and libraries you built.

Hope this helps!
