Thanks everyone for your help, I took the lazy way out.
I'm now taking a course on RPM package management and hopefully I can figure out how to compile these myself.

If compiling ffmpeg and its dependencies is too big a hurdle for you - I myself am too lazy on some of my machines - then negativo17 have a nice repository for you.

I'm more of a Fedora kind of guy (Fedora has been using dnf instead of yum for the last couple of years), but I *think* you would need to do

$ sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://negativo17.org/repos/epel-multimedia.repo
$ sudo yum install ffmpeg

This will not get you ffmpeg from git master, which we prefer to support on this list, but it will get you the latest release of ffmpeg.
