I know little to nothing about installing unix programs, but using the
detailed instructions here: http://ffmpegmac.net/
with a little help,
I was able to do it, and have since updated it. You can download
two different mac binaries or click the "How To" link and
follow the instructions to download all
the files and compile them yourself. Best is to use a script.
Sebastian is doing a great service by putting this information up and
keeping it updated for the less knowledgeable among us.

yasm not found, use --disable-yasm for a crippled build
If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from Git. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
solving the problem.
