Ok, so here's what I'm working through
- The ffmpeg version I currently have, through Brew is 4.2.2
- The stdout I posted suggests I ran 4.2.2
- The version Carl suggests downloading from https://ffmpeg.org/download.html suggests 4.2.2 is the latest version
- But Carl also says the version I"m using is ">6 months old"

So what's the tell-tale sign of a >6month old version?
How to update via Brew assuming I actually need to update and to what?
Or Is there some kind of misunderstanding?
