I think ffmpeg is more like ImageMagick in terms of complexity and footprint
on the server.
I've never tried to install from RPM (I can't even imagine an extension that
installs something from source) but supposedly it's possible:
Perhaps any ffmpeg-dependent extension should assume the server admin has
installed already?
