That .7z file appears to contain a single statically-linked ffmpeg 
executable, so just delete the file "ffmpeg".

If you'd done even the slightest research (as I did, took under a minute), 
you'd see that the "installer" consists of unzipping the .7z file and 
getting a single ffmpeg executable. Which can then be deleted. (And... 
that's a Mac build, not a *nix build.)

If you don't have anything useful to say, better not to say anything.
