[FFserver-user] Setting up ffmpeg on a shared server

I am designing a website that has the following features:
1. The user can upload audio files which are converted on upload to MP3 for use with a jPlayer audio playlist.
2. The site contains videos which I would like to be optimised for streaming, including the HTTP Pseudo-Streaming method.
I am presuming the best way to achieve the first feature is to install ffmpeg on my server/host. At the moment I have a shared hosting package with Hostpapa, and I am wondering whether it is possible to install ffmpeg on a shared server. If not, what would be the best solution? I presume my options are either to set up a home server, or pay for a more expensive remote hosting package.
I would be grateful for any advice to get this set up optimally.
